Pizza sauce recipe – How to make easy tomato pizza sauce at home. Pizza sauce and easy to make at home. Yes ! It’s true. For me this seems to be the easiest things I can ever do in my kitchen. I just follow a base recipe and then tweak around with different ingredients that are optional.
The base recipe needs very few ingredients that most kitchen always have, tomatoes, garlic, chili flakes, pepper, olive oil, oregano and yes a bit of paprika to get an exciting deep color. I like to blend my pizza sauce, as it gives a uniform color and brings out the flavors. However you could skip it, if you don’t mind the chunky pizza sauce.
I usually make pizza sauce at home fresh each time I make the pizza. This tomato pizza sauce can be used to make pizza of any kind like veg pizza, chicken pizza, paneer tikka pizza, bread pizza, vegetable pizza sandwich.
