Homemade Pizza Sauce

I saw this recipe on Best Bites and have been wanting to try since we make a lot of homemade pizza at our house. It is so simple, and yet so fantastic. The kids all loved it. I really like the thickness and tangy flavor. It is a lot more zippy than using tomato sauce as a base. TRY IT!! The Garlic Bread seasoning is also great for, well, garlic bread!

Pizza Sauce

Recipe from

Pizza Sauce

1 6-oz. can tomato paste
6 oz. water (just use the empty tomato paste can)
3 Tbsp. garlic bread seasoning*
1 Tbsp. sugar or honey (I usually use sugar because it's easier and hey, I think we've established here that if there's an easy road or a hard road, I usually take the easy road...)
3/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)

Empty tomato paste into a bowl and add water a few tablespoons at a time, stirring constantly until combined. Add remaining ingredients, stir to combine, and allow to stand until ready to use. Covers two average-sized pizza; freezes extremely well.

*Garlic Bread Seasoning:

combine the following ingredients

1/2 c. powdered Parmesan cheese

2 tsp. Kosher salt
2 Tbsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. basil
2 tsp. marjoram
2 tsp. parsley
