We got over 7 lbs of tomatoes from our CSA this week, which is a LOT for two people. I went looking for a way to use a lot of them and found this recipe. I added 1/4 teaspoon of chili flakes for a hint of spice and completely forgot the tomato paste, but it came out great! I waited for it to cool a bit and blended it in my Ninja blender. It ended up just a bit chunky, but totally spreadable. I asked my husband to taste it to see if we wanted to adjust the seasoning and he immediately said, "I'd eat that with some bread RIGHT NOW!" I ended up freezing 5 portions for pizzas and leaving him a little bit to eat as he wanted, which he happily used to make a tortilla pizza for lunch. I don't hope to come by so many tomatoes at once again in the near future, but I am definitely saving this recipe!
The recipe is my first ho-made Pizza sauce! I used all fresh spices and the flavor was delicious! I definitely will make this again!
This was fantastic. I have a big crop of Roma tomatoes. If I were to make a big batch of this, would it be fine to freeze?
Fantastic... my go-to pizza sauce. It freezes well and brings me pizza cheer all year long.
This is so good!! I have never made pizza sauce before, but I had a lot of tomatoes from my garden, so I decided to give this recipe a try. It was fairly easy to make. I had big juicy tomatoes, so I had to simmer mine for 3 hours to get to pizza sauce consistency, but it was worth the wait. Mine made 5 cups of sauce. The thing I really liked is that the whole house smells yummy when simmering and you really don't have to stir it a lot while simmering. About every 15 mins is fine. Made a pizza with it that night and my husband who doesn't usually like homemade pizza raved about it saying that it tasted so fresh!! I didn't change the recipe at all.
Lovely recipe! Easy to make no incredibly tasty. Made it for a pizza party we had today and it was compliments all round! Will definitely use this recipe again in future.
This is a great recipie and very simple to make. I added some red pepper flakes and a little balsamic vinegar, left out the sugar. Delicious! So many compliments. I will be making this again.
It was excellent! After blanching the tomatoes I cooked all the ingredients in a big pot. Then I used my Bamix mixer to puree the mixture and continued to cook on low for 2 hours. Only addition was one fresh cayenne pepper with seeds from the garden. This is now my go to recipe for pizza or spaghetti sauce.
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 easyThis 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!
