Homemade Pizza Sauce – a rich tomato sauce with a touch of sweetness combined with the great flavors of basil, garlic, and oregano. The perfect base for those pizza toppings!
There are times when we love to go to a restaurant and try to find the best pizza. It’s sort of been our “mission” as a family where ever we have lived. It’s been fun comparing this pizza to that one and trying to find our favorite.

In Phoenix, the two places we liked the most were NYPD Pizza and Times Square. Man, how I miss those two places, especially Times Square. Their Spaghetti Alla Bolognese is unreal and it is one of those great little restaurants with awesome food, large servings that are inexpensive, and wonderful staff.
BUT, when you’re not in the mood to go out and want to make your pizza to YOUR liking, you always have the option of making it at home. It’ll save you some money, too because it’s always less expensive to make it yourself.
I’ve been experimenting with different flavorings and amounts and finally came up with one that the whole family enjoyed. For us, it’s a keeper and I hope you and yours enjoy it as well!

We liked it a lot. I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 and this Homemade Pizza Sauce earned 3 1/2 rolling pins. While it may not be the best sauce I’ve ever had, it comes pretty close and will definitely be used again. I like how it made quite a bit, too because I was able to freeze about 1/2 of it for later use.
