Homemade Pizza Sauce
Homemade Pizza Sauce is so easy and flavorful, you will never go back to store-bought again.
- 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 large cloves garlic minced
- 1/4 cup dry red wine
- 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
- 2 Tbsp tomato paste
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and saute briefly (~1 minute) until lightly golden. Add the wine and simmer a minute to deglaze and boil off the alcohol.
Reduce heat to medium-low and add the remaining ingredients. Simmer gently for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, to blend flavors and thicken the sauce.
Taste and adjust for salt and sweetness, adding a little sugar if necessary if the sauce is too acidic.
Use immediately or refrigerate and keep up to a week. This sauce can also be frozen.
This pizza sauce recipe yields enough for 3-4 large pizzas, depending how thick you layer your sauce.
Calorie estimation is approximate and is based on using all the sauce for 3 pizzas, 8 slices each, 2 slice servings per person.
