Introduction

This is a great sauce for most pizzas--I use it most frequently on veggie pizza but also works for supreme, meat pizzas, or any classic combo of meat, cheese & veggies.

    Outstanding! Only recipe I'll use going forward. I've made a couple batches for the freezer to have ready to go on (almost) a moments notice. The vinegar sounded a little strange, but i do believe it's what's been lacking in previous tries at homemade sauces. Thanks!! - 9/1/11

    I was a bit uncertain about the paprika but decided to make the recipe as shown, except I used red wine vinegar because that's what I had. I like the result but may upgrade my rating to five stars once the flavors blend overnight. I am using it on cauliflower tonight with melted mozzarella cheese. - 3/31/15

    Absolutely loved, just enough spice although now sure how...had everything on hand so it was quick and easy for a nice lunch. We put it opiated bread with veggies, cheese, Parmesan and pepperoni, the pita bread gave it a hint of sweetness. - 9/13/13

    Omitted the salt and used swerve instead of sugar. Was a hit on pizza with Keto crust. Tasty! - 4/9/19

    This was awesome. I only needed enough for 4 slices of cauliflower crust and it was perfect. I will save the rest and perhaps have pizza made with cauliflower crust again this week! Thank you! - 10/24/16

    This Sauce was awesome!! The only thing I did not put it was the basil and that was only because I did not have any. I also put a tablespoon of red pepper since I really like hot and spicy stuff. - 5/19/11

    This was so easy to make! The combination of spices--a little sweetness with the tangy vinegar and all the Italian spices is just right for me. - 1/18/10
