Homemade Pizza Sauce

Was trying to figure out what to do with all my tomatoes.  Happened to go out for coffee with a friend last week, and she was making pizza sauce!  Got her to email me the recipe - so for two evenings this last week I made pizza sauce.  Michelle also uses it in Spaghetti and Lasagna, which we really love!  

Pizza Sauce
12 cup of chopped tomatoes
1 green pepper
1 cup chopped onion

Cook 1-1 1/2 hours.  Put through a juicer, blender or food processor.

ADD:
1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons basil
6 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons salt

In a spice ball put: 1 clove garlic, 1/2 bay leaf, 1/2 teaspoon pepper kernels.

Cook 1 1/2 hours, then add 4 - 5.5oz cans tomato pasted to thicken.

Can or freeze.

It's really easy to make and smells exactly like pizza sauce!  Will be making more next year :)

  1. This is worth keeping. We use pizza sauce instead of spaghetti sauce - better flavor.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I've always wanted to make home made pizza sauce, but thought it would be difficult. This sounds so easy.

    I didn't generate that color pallette it's from thegrittybird but you can generate your own from a photo on :

  4. I just came from another blog that posted about home made pizza and then here with the sauce. I think it's a sign, I must have pizza :)
    I have a ton of tomatoes in the fridge right now, maybe I'll spend the morning making sauce.
