“In isolation 2020 you have to make use of what you have in your pantry….. no pizza sauce available in mine, so I made my own…”

  • 20 g tomato paste
  • 425 g tomato sauce (I used homemade)
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons oregano, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ tablespoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Mix tomato paste and sauce together in a medium size bowl until well combined (all the lumps of paste are incorporated into the sauce).
Add the rest of the ingredients (oregano, italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, garlic salt, pepper and sugar) and mix well!
Use in your favourite pizza recipe!
Sugar can be omitted and it will still taste great!

To store:
Refrigerate: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. The sauce will thicken in the refrigerator, so be sure to let it come to room temperature or gently warm it in the microwave before using!

Freeze: Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two months!

Ingredient substitutions:
Tomato sauce. Sometimes I run out of tomato sauce and in a pinch I have used a can of diced tomatoes that I tossed in my blender to turn into sauce! You can also use fresh blended tomatoes as well!

Oregano/italian seasoning. I always make this with dried spices, but feel free to use fresh! Also, if you like a tamer sauce you might want to start will less and add more to your liking!

Garlic salt. If you don’t keep garlic salt on hand, feel free to use a little more garlic powder and regular sea salt!

Granulated sugar. You can use coconut sugar or honey instead of granulated sugar.
