Homemade Pizza Sauce Should be Kept Simple

Homemade pizza sauce is very easy to make but there can often be a temptation and even an inclination to include too many and often non-essential ingredients. While the tomato based pizza sauce is of course important to almost every pizza recipe, the principal flavours of the pizza should come from the cheese and other toppings. This page provides instructions for making a very basic but delicious pizza sauce for your perfect homemade pizza.

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: One


  • 1 8 oz can chopped tomatoes in tomato juice
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Generous pinch of dried basil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Pour the tomatoes in to a saucepan. Peel the garlic clove and grate it in to the tomatoes with a hand grater. Season with the basil, salt and pepper.
  2. Put the saucepan on to a moderate heat until the sauce reaches a simmer. Reduce the heat to as low as possible and simmer for around fifteen minutes, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon, until a lush, thick sauce is formed.
  3. The sauce at this stage must be covered and allowed to cool completely before being used on your pizza. Alternatively, you may wish to allow it to cool only slightly before sieving it or blitzing it in a food processor to achieve maximum smoothness.
