I really liked this sauce, but made a couple small changes too. Like many others, I added about 1/4 teaspoon sugar to the sauce. I also changed the minced garlic to garlic powder, with good results. Use this with the "Pizza Crust for Bread Machine" recipe on this site for a quick and easy home-made pizza dinner! Read More

Yes this sauce was easy but it definitely lacked flavor. All I could really taste was the tomato sauce. I think I will be looking for another pizza sauce recipe. Read More

Was in a pinch thought I had sauce. Simple is good!!!!!!! I will never buy sauce again. I used Italian seasoning, crushed some fresh garlic used more than called for, tiny tiny bit of sugar.Split a french bread in 1/2 and sauced it, lite cheese because I did not have much. Threw on some tomato,peperoni, mushrooms. Whipped up a simple salad and my family raved. I have never made a dinner this simple and fast that they loved this much. THANK YOU Read More

I was out of tomato sauce so substituted a 6 oz. can of tomato paste and 1 cup water. I think the flavor was richer with the paste. Doubled the amount of spices and it turned out very good...what I hoped for in a quick pizza sauce. Read More

This sauce saved my booty when I was making "cheesy pizza dip" from this site and realized that I didn't have any pizza sauce. I had everything on hand to make it & it lived up to it's name. I also added a pinch of sugar. I will use this next time I make the dip as well. Thanks Melanie!! Read More

Easy as pie! I use crushed tomato (or puree) so it's a bit thicker. Read More

I have made this sauce just as the recipe states or added a tiny bit of sugar and it tastes good either way. SO cheap to make and tastes just like the stuff you pay 1.50 a can for at the store. Read More
