2.17.17 Followed the recipe and was quite happy with the way this turned out. I did add just a little bit of sugar to tame the acidity and a little garlic powder, but other that, wouldn’t change a thing. Made one small pizza for a late Friday lunch, and the rest of the sauce went into the freezer. Making homemade pizza sauce is so economical, and this is not only easy, it's a good recipe! Read More

I switched out one of the onions for a tablespoon of chopped garlic, because garlic is awesome. It tastes good. I think next time I'll trade up the basil and oregano amounts; I like basil better. Makes a LOT of sauce; I'm taking a jar to my parents tomorrow. Read More

Excellent sauce. I made it as described and it was great. My guys at the firehouse wanted a little sweetness so I added a bit of brown and white sugar. Otherwise Amazing. Thank you. Read More

It's a nice start. But pizza sauce without garlic is unfathomable. That, and overly heavy on onion. Read More
