Ingredients in the Sauce

We make homemade pizza dough, so of course we need to have a pizza sauce recipe too! Homemade Pizza Sauce is so easy to make and tastes so much better than bottled sauce (in my opinion).

For the pizza sauce you will need tomato paste, water, Parmesan cheese (the bottled kind), onion powder, garlic powder, kosher salt, Italian Seasoning, white sugar, ground oregano and red pepper flakes (optional).

DO NOT use tomato sauce- it will be way to runny.
