Homemade Pizza Sauce

This rich and vibrant homemade pizza sauce can be made with either fresh tomatoes or canned tomatoes.  Use it on your homemade sourdough pizza bases for the best pizza you’ll ever eat!


  • 1/2 onion finely diced
  •  4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • 3 1/2 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 3 1/2 tbs tomato paste
  • 1 28-oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbs italian herbs


  1. Heat a heavy based pan and add olive oil and diced onions to the bottom of the pan.  Fry at medium heat until the onion start to brown and soften.
  2. Add the canned tomatoes and finely chopped garlic and stir through to fully combine with the olive oil and onions.  Allow to cook for around 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring through once or twice.
  3. Now add the sugar, herbs, pepper, and salt and stir really well to ensure the sugar is well dissolved.  Then add the tomato paste and stir again.
  4. Simmer the sauce on a low heat for around 1 hour.  Leave the lid off to help the sauce thicken. Stir occasionally to ensure the bottom doeson’t catch.
  5. Once the sauce has thickened and cooked for around an hour, take it off the heat.
  6. Use a blender and blitz the sauce until it’s thick and smooth.
  7. Place the finished sauce into a bowl or jar and into the fridge to chill before you use it on a pizza. (hot sauce will make the base soggy).
