There’s nothing like homemade pizza—being able to choose exactly which ingredients you want on your pizza, adding just the right amount of cheese, cooking it until the crust is crispy or soft. Making your own sauce is just another way of personalizing your pizza. Sure, it’s easy to pick a can of pizza sauce off the grocery store shelf, but the list of ingredients is generally either long and confusing or disgusting. It is so quick and easy to make your own sauce. Let me show you how!

Here’s what you’ll need: tomato paste, olive oil, dried oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, maple syrup, red wine, and water.

Notes:

1. If you don’t have any tomato paste on hand, you can substitute 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of tomato puree or tomato sauce for the tomato paste and water. If using sauce, you may need to adjust the other seasonings.

This sauce is amazing, I quadrupled the recipe and froze in 1/2 pint jars in august. we just finished the last jar so I made another batch (x4) while the pizza was cooking, I didn’t want to be without!

I made this recipe last night, and it brought raves from my husband!

I made this last night and it was super easy and delish, plus I had everything on hand. I used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder and fresh basil in place of the dried oregano. I went creative on the toppings and topped with shrimp I marinated in chilies in adobo sauce, EVOO, fresh garlic, salt and pepper then grilled. I also added cashews, craisins and lots of fresh mozzarella. My husband added jalapenos and onions on his half. We will definitely be making this again- both the sauce and the crazy-delicious topping combo!

I’d like to know about the canning as well–water bath??

Alyssa: Yes, that is definitely real maple syrup! We “harvest” our own maple syrup. I agree: only the real stuff is good enough. The cheap imitation stuff makes me want to gag. ;)
