Fresh Pizza Sauce

An easy fresh tasting Pizza Sauce

If you wanna talk about the ‘real way’ to make pizza sauce , then this recipe is what you are looking for.  I vacation practically every year in Italy, and I can’t imagine the restaurants actually cooking the sauce beforehand.  A key here is to let it sit at least an hour so that the minced garlic, olive oil, and herbs become one with the tomato sauce. Lots of fresh flavor but not overdominating. This pizza sauce does not take the front seat in the theater. The other ingredients are the stars of the show with the sauce being the backbone – clean and pure with fresh aromatic taste. Once again, if you do not want your pizza sauce to be the strongest taste, then I suggest working with this recipe.

  • Don’t add sugar! Please!  It is already sweet enough but if you insist, go ahead and add a little and adjust to your likening.
  • Garlic Powder? This is really not an option, let the fresh garlic infuse and do its magic! Otherwise don’t bother and by some store brand shit.
  • Onions? – not in the recipe as we prefer to keep this want simpler and concentrated on the tomato flavor. But you can if you want that added layer of complexity to the sauce.
  • Fresh Oregano for sure! Play with the herbs – Herb de Provence or Italian Herb Mixes certainly can be added but don’t overdo it. Remember it is a simple sauce, tasty but too complex. Designed for the other ingredients to shine.
