Pizza sauce

Pizza sauce is an ingredient without which pizza isn’t complete. It’s added over the pizza dough, before all types of toppings, or it’s served along with baked pizza. I’ve noticed there are very few restaurants, or pizza places, that offer you their home made pizza sauce. Mostly i’ve been served store bought pizza sauce, ketchup or raw plain tomato juice with a few spices.

It is so easy to do it's not even worth buying it from the store. I mean if you are willing to spend a while in the kitchen making home made pizza why not make home made sauce instead of using ketchup?

Don't get me wrong. I love ketchup (especially with fries, burgers or in hot dogs), but you can't compare it with real pizza sauce made with your hands in the kitchen. Obviously it's a lot healthier.

  • If you want your sauce to be spicier add hot paprika, or chilli flakes, or hot chili sauce, according to your taste.
  • I prefer to add a teaspoon of sugar because i find tomato juice to be too sour.
  • Let it cool a bit and serve it with your favorite pizza.

Enjoy your home made pizza!
