What Is Pizza Sauce?
Pizza sauce is a condiment that is used in the preparation of pizzas. You can make it out of tomato, mushrooms, onions, garlic, or any combination thereof. There are many different ways to prepare it, but there are some unspoken rules when making pizza sauce.
Ingredients Needed For Homemade Pizza Sauce

How To Make Homemade Pizza Sauce
In a large bowl, mix the ingredients until everything is well combined.
Tomato Sauce: You can always use diced tomatoes, although you would have to use a blender to blend until smooth.
Tomato Paste: This helps to thicken up the sauce. So, it’s essential.
Seasonings: I usually use dried, but you can use fresh, if available. Add a dash (1/8 of a teaspoon) of red pepper flakes if you want to add some heat.
Do I Need To Cook The Sauce Before Using?
The most common misconception about pizza sauce is that you have to cook it until the consistency of wet paste. This isn’t true! You can use it as is, without any cooking!
How To Store Homemade Pizza Sauce?
Great! Now you can use this sauce for your favorite pasta dish. Just heat a little bit in the microwave before adding it to cooked noodles, rice, or other containers that need an extra boost of flavor; then enjoy
Can Pizza Sauce Be Frozen?
You can freeze leftover pizza sauce to use later. Fill an air-tight container and store it in the freezer for up two months or transfer it into a small pot before freezing, then thawing as needed over low heat until heated through!
