Like Mama Made Pizza Sauce

My Grams always made her own pizza sauce. I grew up on this and a pizza isn't a pizza without it. It's VERY basic and quick to whip up which is why I like it. Use it as a base if you prefer more flavors.

  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar believe me, it adds a depth of flavor. Try it! You can use red wine if you don't have balsamic.
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp italian seasonings
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 small tomato diced
  • Optional: a bit more water or more balsamic or worcestershire to keep it from being too pasty
  • * sweetener


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.

  2. Spread on your partially baked 2 ingredient pizza pie crust. Or, if you're the type who can't wait - just smear on your unbaked pizza crust.

  3. Add you topping to the pizza and pop into your oven!

  4. *Some folks add sugar, maple syrup or honey as a sweetener. I don't get it but if that's your thing use 1 teaspoon to start and adjust from there. You be you boo.
