The Most Amazing Pizza Sauce EVER

My husband and I are picky about our pizza sauce. It has to be thick, rich, and immensely flavorful. After all, the sauce is what sets off the flavors of everything else on the pizza. The following recipe fits the bill for us. I found it on Pioneer Woman's food blog posted by ericalea. I've added a few of my own adjustments. I wonder if I'm able to can this stuff....

(Amazing) Homemade Pizza Sauce

1 lg. or 2 sm. cans tomato paste (should equal 12 oz.)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
4 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
2/3 cups water (approx.)

Mix all ingredients together until thoroughly combined. You may like to put in more or less water according to how thin or thick you like your sauce. Spread it on your prepared pizza dough and you're ready to go!
Makes enough for 1 1/2 - 2 pizzas (depending on how thick you like your sauce.) Store extra sauce in the fridge.

What we like to do with our leftover sauce is to make mini pizzas a few days later using toasted whole wheat homemade bread and any leftover pizza toppings. Broil them in the oven and they're an easy, tasty lunch!

PLEASE try this stuff. It is amazing.

Yum! Thanks for sharing Sarah, we are pizza fans around here. And I am always looking for ways to improve my sauce--this sounds delish.

I'll have to try this. It's bound to be better than my "add a tablespoon of minced garlic and a teaspoon or oregano to a can of tomato sauce" recipe. In fact, I think I'll try this on Friday (pizza night)!

I have buying pizza sauce. It is waaay too expensive when you can make it yourself.
