Homemade Garlic Pizza Sauce

I don’t like Italian food. I know. It’s weird. I’ve almost lost some friends over that little fact. But it’s just not my thing. I think it’s because I don’t like pizza or pasta. Again, weird, right? I’ll eat it, but I don’t get excited about going out for Italian. Or cooking it at home.

Much to Hubby’s delight, I decided to whip up some homemade pizza sauce. We were getting together for a big group and I wanted to make some appetizers that everyone would enjoy. After making this Homemade Garlic Pizza Sauce, I decided that I might be able to be swayed about the whole Italian food situation…

As always, I put a LOT of garlic in this sauce. It came out thick and chunky and amazingly flavorful.

Homemade Garlic Pizza Sauce

Making your own pizza sauce at home is so simple and you'll be amazed at the flavor!

Yield: 2 cups

Ingredients:

1 (14.5 oz.) can tomato sauce
3 Tbsp tomato paste
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
pinch of cayenne
splash of red wine (optional)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until bubbles begin to rise (and pop) at the surface.

Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for another 15 minutes.

Serve warm. Store in fridge up to two weeks or freeze to use later.

    I definitely look forward to corned beef every year. Yours looks awesome. We actually trekked to CT this year for my mom’s corned beef and cabbage. And I got to take some leftovers home to make corned beef hash!

    Hi! I would like to try this for Saint Patrick’s Day this year and wanted to verify that the liquid ingredients added to the dutch oven are not brought to a simmer on the stovetop before being placed in the oven?

      Yep! Just dump it in and throw it in the oven.
