Pizza Sauce Step by Step Recipe

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This sauce is great on homemade pizza, as a dunking sauce for bread sticks, or paired with a fresh batch of garlic knots! It’s incredibly quick. It doesn’t need a long cook time like other red sauces need.

Take one large clove of garlic, or several small ones, and thinly slice them. Heat the olive oil in a medium sized saucepan and cook over medium-low heat for 1 minute.

Add the rest of the ingredients and cook over low heat for 20-25 minutes.
