Around here, if we are making pizza…we are making homemade pizza sauce. There’s just no way around it! Forrest takes great pride in creating flavorful pizza sauces, and if he’s willing to make it – that’s fine with me. I have yet to find a jarred pizza sauce that beats out the flavor and spice of the pizza sauces he creates.

This is a basic herbed pizza sauce – we made it with some ingredients from our garden, and it was absolutely fantastic. I could almost just eat it by the spoonful. We didn’t make this as spicy as we sometimes do, but if you want a kick, adding some red pepper flakes is always a nice addition.

This is perfect on top of of our easy pizza dough recipe or even on top of English muffin pizzas. This is always a huge hit with everyone who tries it – we are always being asked for the recipe.

So if you are looking to make a pizza sauce from scratch, this is definitely the recipe you’ll be looking for.
