Simple Pizza Sauce

In the past, when I wanted to make a pizza, I would usually just open a jar of spaghetti sauce and use some of that for my pizza sauce.  It's pretty much the same thing, right?  Of course, I never needed the whole jar of sauce for a couple of pizzas, so we'd always have to have spaghetti later in the week.  Not necessarily a bad thing, but...

Recently I started making this super simple pizza sauce.  The original recipe called for a larger can of tomato sauce, but I find that an 8-oz. can makes just the perfect amount for 2 pizzas - which is what I usually make if I'm making pizza.  So, it's perfect.  And the flavor is pretty good, too.

Simple Pizza Sauce
from closetcooking

  • 1 tsp. olive oil.
  • 2 or 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat the oil in a sauce pan.
  2. Add the garlic and and oregano, and saute until fragrant, about a minute.
  3. Add tomato sauce and simmer until it thickens, about 10-20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I'm also a huge fan of the garlic sauce from the Chicken Garlic Pizza, which might be why I use just as much garlic in this sauce as the original recipe, with only half as much tomato sauce.  If you're not as big a fan of garlic, simply adjust. 

Between the two sauces, there are all kinds of pizza options.  How about you?  Do you have a favorite pizza sauce?
