This was a nice simple sauce that we are quite likely to make again. I doubled the oregano because it didn't seem like enough after tasting perhaps mine is aged and losing flavor. I might try fresh next time. I also eliminated the oil (personal preference). I had an open can of fire roasted tomatoes in puree that was a similar consistency to sauce so that is what I used instead. I ended up with two nice thick cups of sauce (one cup covered a large pizza quite nicely). I cut down on the salt due to the salt in the tomatoes but I will use the full amount with my unsalted tomato sauce. Read More

This was ok. It was more like spaghetti sauce than pizza sauce. My kids liked it though. Very easy and quick to prepare. Read More

This is very similar to my own recipe and a great classic. No need to ever purchase store bought sauce and easy enough to keep the basics on hand anytime you should need to make a pizza sauce. Excellent flavor! Read More

Also similar to mine lol the only difference is I omit the salt and use salt free diced tomatoes as I am on a salt free diet but once you add the spices it's fantastic and you'll never know the salt is missing thanks for this basic wonderful recipe. Read More

This was a great sauce. In fact I made it three weekends in a row paired with a pizza dough recipe from this site. Sure there are fancier recipes but this turned out very nicely for such a simple-to-prepare recipe with so few ingredients. I made it exactly as written. (I'm not sure why the "chill in refrigerator" step is needed but I always refrigerated it for at least an hour.) One of my big concerns was the texture/spreadability of the sauce and it totally met my expectations. The first time using a 14-inch pizza pan the sauce was a bit too thick. After that the whole batch sufficed nicely for a 16-inch pizza. I may go on to try fancier pizza sauce recipes but this one is highly recommended. Read More

Made exactly as written (believe unfair to rate after tweaking) and found it to be a solid basic sauce recipe using ingredients most have on hand. Read More

I made no changes to this recipe what so ever and it was delish. I will definitely keep this on hand for making my pizzas. My husband said that this was the best pizza he has ever tasted. This one is a keeper. Read More
