Easy and Delicious Pizza Sauce Recipe
Whip up some pizza sauce
You might be waiting on the simple pizza dough to rise that final hour and you realize that you need some pizza sauce. Here is a quick and delicious pizza sauce recipe that will save the day.
- One 6 oz can tomato paste
- 2 teaspoons salt, kosher
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- oregano, dried
- favorite hot sauce
- red pepper flakes
Mix it all together
Mix paste, 2 teaspoons of salt, teaspoon of oil, 7-8 grinds on the pepper mill, 1 teaspoon of hot sauce (or red pepper flakes), 2 pinches of oregano. Next turn the water on at the faucet to a drizzle and with a spoon slowly mix in water into the paste mix a little at a time until you achieve your desired consistency. Taste sauce and if it is to sweet add some salt and if it is to salty add water but be careful not to make your sauce to runny. Be careful not to make your sauce to watery because that water will just come to the surface during the cook and could make your pizza to wet. The sauce should be around the consistency of ketchup. Put the sauce in the refrigerator and let it sit for 15 mins to allow the flavors time to mingle. That is it, your pizza sauce is just about ready to go on your dough.
Prepare the dough for the sauce
Before putting the sauce onto the dough be sure to prepare the dough first. Use a fork to lightly poke holes all around the area where you will be putting the pizza sauce. Next lightly brush the dough with olive oil and then put down your pizza sauce. The holes prevent large air bubbles in the dough from forming during the bake and pushing the toppings all around. The oil helps prevent the sauce from soaking into the dough. Enjoy!
