Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe

How to make Pizza Sauce | Easy Tomato Pizza Sauce Recipe | Quick & Easy Italian Pizza Sauce with step by step pics.

Hello Friends,

Making pizza sauce at home is very satisfying for me as not only simple and easy to make but also taste much better than the store bought stuff. I strongly suggest you to give it a try. Sharing recipe with step by step pics.


The USP of today's recipe is that it is created from scratch. Usually, pizza sauce recipes are made from store bought tomato paste or tomato sauce. But this is prepared from very fresh, red and juicy tomatoes.

The action plan for today's recipe is blanching of tomatoes followed by pureeing and then cooking it on slow flame with garlic, onion, basil leaves and flavored it with Italian seasoning and chilli flakes.

☑Let's get started
