This easy homemade pizza sauce recipe is one of my favorite from-scratch recipes. It can be prepared while you’re heating up the oven!
The tides are turning… which in Honey and Birch-land means spring is here.
Everything is better in spring. The sun shines more, I want to cook more, and photos can be taken at more times in the day and later at night. This makes me a very happy food blogger.
When I’m a happier cook, I get more creative and like to do more things from-scratch. I spent a lot of the winter using canned goods that I bought at the store or that my friends gave to me.

Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe
I came up with this easy homemade pizza sauce recipe last year and put it on the back burner after we tested it a few times.
Not for any reason in particular – I just wasn’t really in an pizza kind of mood until this week. We’ve been looking for some easy, quick meals.
This sauce is so quick to whip up that you can prep it while you’re pre-heating the oven. You will be able to make homemade pizza sauce and assemble your pizza before the oven is even ready to cook it!
Simple ingredients are what you need to make this recipe – nothing fancy. I usually use canned tomato sauce and canned tomato paste as my base. If you have extra time, try making your own homemade tomato sauce or homemade tomato paste.
I like to add a lot of garlic to my sauce but feel free to decrease the amount if you are a vampire… or if you don’t like garlic.
All of the ingredients are put into a small bowl and then whisked together.
