A lot of people seem to buy jars of pre-made pizza sauce, which admittedly is probably less effort, but probably costs more and doesn’t taste as good. This sauce is so easy to make and goes particularly well with this pizza dough recipe: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/bobby-flay/pizza-dough-recipe-1921714
This is the best pizza dough recipe I have found. It tastes as good as takeaway pizza and you can let the dough rise in the fridge overnight if you want to make it the day before. It also freezes really well.
Here is the recipe for sauce (I am hoping all of these measurements are accurate since I typically just throw things at a pot.)
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oil
Throw all ingredients in a pot (apart from the oil) and simmer on a low heat for 10-15 minutes until all the flavours have combined.
Take it off the heat and stir in the oil, transfer to a blender and puree as smoothly as you like. I usually do mine in a smoothie maker and it comes out really smooth and a very vibrant colour, but you can use a blender, hand blender or if you have neither, just mash it really well 🙂 This usually makes enough sauce to top three 10 inch pizzas. (You can double the recipe to make a larger quantity.) The sauce also freezes well (just drain off any excess liquid when it defrosts before putting it on the pizza.)
For a really quick pizza use this on pittas, grilled muffins, bagels or make pizza toast for kids 🙂
