Great pizza sauce. I've also doubled the recipe and froze it. Just thaw and spread on the pizza.

Great basic pizza sauce recipe! I used a chunky tomato sauce and would go with something smoother next time.

This is a lovely sauce, made even lovelier by the ease of making it. As the first reviewer stated, it is much better than store-bought sauce. It costs pennies to make and is simple enough to include additional favorite flavors without overdoing the flavor.

This sauce is amazing! I didn't have any basil :( so I substituted Italian Seasoning. It have the sauce a little kick. This sauce was so good, I think I may make a huge batch and can it.

Good basic recipe, to which I added extra tomato sauce, less onion, extra garlic, and lots of extra spices. Oh, and I added honey! Yum!

This sauce recipe was OK. I made it last night. I had to spice it up a bit as I found that the recipe recommended amounts of spices were not enough. It wasn't great, but it was pretty decent. Would I make it again? Yes, but I will experiment further with spicing it up a bit.

Super Easy - and the tough critics (kids) approve! I agreed and added half the sugar at the end for a perfect balance! I won't buy jarred again!

COMMENT:
Question 1: Do I have to use red or white onion?
Question 2: Do I use rock or iodized salt?
Thank you.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
This is a great pizza sauce recipe! It probably would have been even better had I read the instructions BEFORE I put the minced onion in the sauce pan rather than sautéing it! DOH! Ah, well. Next time I use it, I'll remember!

Also, I added a bit more sugar (I like it a bit sweeter).

This sauce was great... I used less sugar, and added it all at the end so I could make it a little less sweet.

Great job!
