Homemade Pizza Sauce...


Oh y'all!! I found the BEST homemade pizza sauce recipe!!! I just googled "pizza sauce" and there it was on Allrecipes (I should have looked there first, that's my favorite place online to find recipes).

Exquisite Pizza Sauce
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
6 fluid ounces warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon anchovy paste (optional)
3/4 teaspoon onion powder 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
salt to taste

1. In a small bowl, combine tomato paste, water, Parmesan cheese, garlic, honey, anchovy paste, onion powder, oregano, marjoram, basil, ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes and salt; mix together, breaking up any clumps of cheese.
2. Sauce should sit for 30 minutes to blend flavors; spread over pizza dough and prepare pizza as desired.

** I did not use anchovy paste and I will probably not use cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes next time. They were a bit too spicy for Elizabeth.

I used our yummy pizza sauce on Pineapple and Ham Pizza. Yum!!!!

That sounds really good, but I don't really like the idea that you have a picture of that absolutely luscious-looking pizza and you are not telling us how you made THAT!!! :-(

Please, may we have the secret to your lovely pizza (including crust recipe and putting-together secrets)? :-D

This sounds very good! I buy my pizza sauce for around $1.00 a can at the grocery store, but I'll have to try this out next time I'm making pizza. It is probably cheaper (I'd leave out the anchovy paste too!) and my dh would like the extra kick from the cayenne and pepper flakes!
