Homemade Pizza sauce/Italian sauce

Pizza sauce is extremely easy to make and just need very few ingredients. Its fresh and preservative free. The best part is that you can customize the flavors as per your likings. I am preparing this sauce since years and must say its a no fail recipe. So lets quickly run through the ingredients following with the method.

Ingredients :
  • Fresh tomatoes (puried) : 1 cup
  • Concentrated puree : 1 tbsp/Normal Puree : 2 tbsp
  • Tomato Ketchup : 2 tbsp
  • Minced Garlic : 2 tbsp
  • Finely chopped Onions : 1/4 cup
  • Chilli Flakes : 1 tsp
  • Oregano : 1 tsp
  • Basil : 1 tsp
  • Corn flour : 1 1/2 tsp
  • Oil : 1 tbsp
  • Sugar : 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Heat oil in a pan, add minced garlic, as soon as the rawness is gone and they are little golden add onions and fry till they become little golden. 
  • Add tomato puree and cook until it becomes thick.
  • Add the concentrated puree with ketchup, herbs, salt, chilli flakes and sugar.
  • Prepare corn flour slurry and mix in the tomato mixture.Cook for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from flame and let it cool at room temperature.
Note : Below pictures here are just for the reference (a rough idea). Quantity of the ingredients is totally different.

You can store pizza sauce for 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
Enjoy it with your pizzas, loaf or just with the chapattis as chutney. 
Thanks n Happy cooking

  1. Thanks a lot Sanam for the kind words :)

  2. In pizza sauce, can you pls tell me Concentrated puree or normal puree means??

    1. Concentrated puree is nothing but dehydrated tomato puree, just a couple of tbsps of it work.
      Usually its difficult to find in India, hence you can simply blanch few tomatoes, peel of the skin and make puree.

  3. Hey keep posting such good and meaningful articles.
