Homemade Pizza Sauce

This recipe for garden-fresh pizza sauce makes a batch large enough to top several pizzas. You can make it right now with fresh tomatoes, but if you have a bumper crop or just want to buy a lot of in-season tomatoes and put them up for another day, canning is not your only option: try freezing them. Just remove the cores and freeze them whole. Then, turn your frozen tomatoes into pizza sauce any time of the year.

Awesome Sauce

Loved using up my tomatoes from my garden. Very fresh taste. Also added a little fennel and a pinch of red pepper. Best pizza sauce I have ever had!

Spicy but not too much.
Perfectly Homemade

I followed the recipe for this sauce exactly and it turned out beautifully! The taste is a great combination of savory with a touch of sweetness and the consistency once it's pureed is perfect. The recipe is one to keep - no more store bought pizza sauce in this house anymore!

So good and easy

This is so easy to make and tastes fantastic. I ended up making it with 3 lbs of tomatoes so I cut down all of the other ingredients and added an extra pinch of sugar and I still had enough to make another pizza. Came out great and was slightly sweet. Very good. Kids asked for seconds on the pizza. Yummy!
