For making 1 pizza- I recommend a 6oz paste and an 8oz sauce with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Why make more when you can make fresh so quickly. I also recommend using all dried herbs instead of fresh onion etc. It will blend better in the sauce. Also a tiny bit (1/2 teasp) vinegar will give it tang, and a little white sugar. I think the other spices you should taste for preference as you go along! Read More

This was a good start, but I think next time I'd use about half of the olive oil. It just seemed to be so overpowering and a little bit too oily. Read More

I prefer chunky pizza sauce, but my husband likes his smooth so I decided to make this recipe. It was really good. Has lots of flavor. I added a little pizza seasoning and some red pepper flakes to mine. Read More

I pretty much followed the suggestions of the last reviewer Liza and got a wonderful pizza!! I used "Jays Pizza Crust" from this webstite. My husband said it tasted like it came from our favorite "non chain" pizza that we spend nearly 20 dollars on. Made at home with many toppings for around 5 dollars. Read More

I tried this in a bind (ran out of store bought) My husband and I loved it! I cut the recipe in half since I was making a small pizza added fresh basil and eliminated the tomato paste (I ran out of that too!) I will be using in place of store bought going forward. YUM! Read More

The onions made it too strong of a sauce. It took away from the flavor of the toppings. I like onions but everyone I made the pizza for was against them. Read More
