OMG! With a little TLC, this sauce tastes just like the sauce in NYC Pizzerias! I added 1/2Tbs basil, 1/2tsp sugar + 1/2 tsp onion powder. Just popped in the blender and Viola! Perfection! Thank You for this recipe!!!
This pizza sauce, with just a few minor tweaks, was AMAZING on my pizza! I used a couple of the suggestions made my another reviewer of this recipe (CINDY18LOU). I only used 2 teaspoons of oregano, and I added 2 teaspoons of basil and 1/2 teaspoon of white sugar. And with those tweaks, I made a Chicago-style stuffed pizza that was absolutely amazing! You can go to my page to read my reviews of those other two recipes and what I did to make them. I used the "Jay's Signature Pizza Crust" and "Chicago-style stuffed pizza" recipes (with minor tweaks to the latter) to make an amazing pizza! Highly recommended! Also, this sauce makes an amazing spaghetti sauce!! And with the 2nd batch, for spaghetti only, I added about 1/2 teaspoon of fennel, which added another very yummy taste to the mix! Next time, I'm going to mix in some ground beef for what I'm sure will be a stellar meat sauce!
About reducing the acid in this recipe, a digestive concern from an earlier reviewer: Sugar was recommended by another reviewer, but it is actually acidic. It cuts the acidic taste, but not the effect in your belly. (The cheese on the pizza, and the white flour in the crust also push the digestive acid levels up.) Instead (or in addition), add baking soda. Really. Remember those baking soda and vinegar "volcanoes" in Middle School? That should remind you of what you need in order to neutralize the acid. With all the strong flavors in this sauce, my guess is 1 tsp will go without notice. Add more, if you want. You could probably sneak some into a homemade crust, too. If heartburn is a frequent problem for you, do a search on "alkaline diet" for more tips.
With modifications, very good! Based on reviews I decided to use fresh garlic (2 cloves), 2 tsp of basil, 1/2 tsp of sugar, 1/2 a tsp of onion powder, and only 2t dried oregano. Still very easy! Used with 'Grilled Pizza Wraps' recipe on this site. Delish!
We (my boyfriend and I) really enjoyed this sauce. I followed others suggestions and added a little bit of sugar. I also added some basil, onion powder, some pepper flakes and some more italian seasoning. It was really good! This was my first time making my own pizza sauce. Only have had it from the pizza places. I think I will continue to use this sauce!
Decided to try this tonight. I just got a bread machine for Christmas...and I've been baking bread all day! Since this is the first day I've had available to sit around the house and bake...i've had so much fun! I also added 1/2 tsp of basil 1/2 tsp of sugar and a 1/2 a tsp of onion powder. This added a lot of extra flavor!
