Homemade Pizza ~ Part 2 …. The Sauce

The pizza adventure continues.  Now on to the sauce; I’ve always made a cooked pizza sauce.  Cooking down the tomatoes to thicken and simmering for hours.  I however have noticed a trend toward uncooked sauce and I must say I am a fan.  It’s easy and works very well.  The flavors are crisp and the seasoning was perfectly balanced yet easily adjusted to suit any tastes. It did make more sauce than I needed for the 2 large pizzas I made.  I may freeze the extra sauce or throw together with some pasta in a day or two.

Uncooked Pizza Sauce

  • 1 ~ 28 o.z. can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp italian herb seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbs sugar

Mix together all ingredients and refrigerate overnight. Taste for seasonings and adjust as desired.  Everything will mellow together as it sets so taste again after an hour or so in the refrigerator.  You could use a combination of basil, thyme and oregano in place of the italian herbs if desired.  Omit the cayenne if you prefer a milder sauce or use crushed red pepper for an extra spicy kick.

I will wrap it all up tomorrow and let you know what we thought.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
