The Best Pizza Sauce [Perfected]


The Best Pizza Sauce [Perfected]

I’ve posted about The Best Pizza Sauce before and we were completely satisfied with it until I decided to sauté some garlic to add to it.  Then over a few months time I added more tomatoes to balance out the addition of olive oil and added a few more spices and some red wine vinegar and this is the final perfected sauce that we’ve been making exclusively for the last 8 months or so.  Like I mentioned in the other pizza sauce post, Brent is extremely hard to please when it comes to pizza sauce.  So for him to declare its deliciousness and say things like, “the more sauce, the better,” is his testimony of pizza sauce perfection.  It’s a perfect blend of each of the ingredients.

The Best Pizza Sauce [Perfected]

Yield: Makes 4-1/2 cups sauce ~ six 3/4 cup servings

The Best Pizza Sauce [Perfected]


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans {14.5 ounces} diced tomatoes
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar


  1. Heat the olive oil in a small sauce pan over low heat. Once the oil is warm, add the minced garlic and cook, stirring frequently for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant. Keep a close eye on the garlic to make sure it doesn't burn. Remove from heat.
  2. Place all of the ingredients, including the garlic/olive oil mixture into a blender and blend to your desired consistency. I don't like chunks of tomato in our sauce so I blend it until it's smooth. If you like yours chunky just give it a few pulses.


After blending the sauce I divide it into zip top bags ~ 3/4 cup per bag and freeze. When I make a pizza I use one 3/4 cup bag per pizza.

    This sounds great! I work at a pizza place that has the best sauce but it has cheese so I can’t share it with my vegan friends. Going to try this out soon! 🙂
