Pizza Sauce

Pizza Sauce with Roasted Onions

Thick, Chunky Homemade Pizza Sauce

We’ve tried a lot of pizza sauce recipes: cooked and uncooked, using canned chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, even fresh tomatoes. This amazing pizza sauce is thick and chunky, adding both flavor and texture to every pizza. This recipe was adapted from the Sue and John’s Best Ever Pizza Sauce recipe on the astray recipes website.
