Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe

How to make pizza with homemade sauce and whole wheat pizza crust.

This is not a canning recipe.  It is a quick easy way to make pizza sauce from home canned tomatoes.  Make this homemade pizza sauce recipe with home canned tomatoes. Delicious and healthy. You will know exactly what is in it!

Here is my homemade whole wheat pizza crust recipe to go with the sauce


1 quart home canned tomatoes 
1 clove garlic
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp basil

Drain tomatoes well.

Press or mince garlic and add to tomatoes.

Add 2 tsp each Oregano and Basil. These quantities can be adapted to your tastes.

Mix and pour into a pan and bring to a boil. This will not get as smooth a consistency as a store bought version and it will have seeds, but it all gets smothered in your favorite pizza toppings and cheese so you won't notice the difference. 

Simmer for 10 minutes. Stirring to prevent sticking. 

Spread onto dough add toppings of your choice, bake and enjoy! 

Not for canning.
