This Easy 5 Minute Pizza Sauce is filled with flavor using pantry staples you may already have on hand. After making this you’ll say goodbye to pre-made store purchased sauce.
Pizza for dinner or lunch happens at least once a week and sometimes more in my house. But it’s not take-out or store purchased pizza, it’s homemade.
Everyone gets to customize their pizza with their favorite toppings because sometimes we don’t agree. But one thing we do agree on is the kind of pizza sauce we use when making our pizzas.
The sauce has to be thick and smooth so that it can be spread in a thin layer over the crust, not saucy with too much liquid.
This sauce is so easy to make all you need is a food processor, blender, or you can make it the old fashion way, mix it by hand. It’s ready in five minutes. If you like your pizza sauce saucy you can add some tomato sauce to your recipe and combine until the sauce is the desired consistency.
Not only is it easy, it’s delicious and can be customized with spices or flavors you prefer. For example if you like spice add in some red pepper flakes or sriracha.
Now let’s talk about crust. I like making my own dough but sometimes I take a shortcut and buy dough from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. For a quick shortcut I use packaged flatbread, like Nann.
Once you have the sauce and the dough all you’ll need is your favorite toppings.
