Homemade Pizza Sauce

The best thing about this Homemade Pizza Sauce, is that you can control what goes into it.  It's not salty, it has great flavor and is my go to sauce when making pizzas or calzones.

This sauce is a little thicker in texture compared to a Marinara Sauce for dishes like Chicken Parmesan.  It's not runny and perfect for pizza or calzones. 


2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1-28 oz can of Crushed Tomatoes
1-12 oz can of Tomato Paste
1-8 oz can of Tomato Sauce
1 med size onion chopped small
4 garlic cloves-Minced
1 tsp of sugar
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of black pepper
1 tsp of dried oregano
1 tsp of dried sweet basil

In medium size pot add the olive oil, garlic and onions..cook on medium heat until the onions are translucent. Cook for about 5 minutes.  Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, sugar, salt, black pepper, oregano and basil. Cook until nice and thick, about 15-20 minutes.
