Pizza Sauce From Scratch

pizza sauce from tomato pizza

This is the best pizza sauce from tomato paste you’ll ever have and it’s the only pizza sauce recipe you’ll ever need.  It goes really well with any type of crust and has a sweet and tangy taste.  It’s my go-to sauce for deep dish pan and thin crust pizza.

If using it for a deep dish or Chicago style pizza, make the sauce a little thicker and put it on top of the pizza instead of spreading directly on the crust.

This is the easiest and fastest pizza sauce you’ll make from scratch.   Simple Italian herbs and spices make this sauce rich and yummy.

  • Put the tomato paste and water in a bowl and stir until smooth and blended. Don't add all of the water at one time, add slowly until you've reached your desired consistency. Add the other ingredients and mix well.


I like to make it ahead of time so the ingredients can come together.
