Ultimate Homemade Pizza Sauce in 10 minutes

Any pizza is incomplete without a tangy and spicy tomato sauce. It’s like the most important part of a Pizza.

There are so many recipes that claim to be the best pizza sauce recipe. One often gets confused about which one to follow.

A classic tomato pizza sauce has tomatoes, onions, fresh basil, oregano, salt, and garlic in it.

But I make my ultimate homemade pizza sauce in under 10 minutes, with a little twist. I made the sauce:

  • with fresh tomatoes
  • no onions
  • in olive oil
  • with black pepper powder
  • with a bit of baking soda
  • and a good amount of ginger garlic paste!

And guess what? I bet you, this recipe is the best sauce for your next home-made pizza.

Ingredients used in homemade pizza sauce

I used my garden-fresh tomatoes to make this sauce. But they were so sour. To reduce the acidity in the sauce, I added a bit of baking soda. The baking soda also helps in thickening my pizza sauce.

But, apart from pizza sauce, you can also use this creamy pesto sauce as a topping for your homemade pizza.

Here’s how you make homemade pizza sauce from scratch
