This basic pizza sauce is easy to make with just a few pantry ingredients. Top a purchased or homemade crust with this sauce, then add toppings and cheese for a great tasting pizza.



  • 1 clove garlic, mashed and minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • dash red pepper, optional


Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes. Let the sauce cool.

Spread over a prepared pizza crust, top with toppings and cheese, and bake as directed.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups, enough for 2 pizzas.
