Old School Pizza Sauce

Pizza Sauce

I have looked for a long time for a great pizza sauce recipe. I used to work at a couple pizza places but only one of them had great pizza. The place that had great sauce had a lot of amazing food. It was a small place called High Desert Pizza in Ivins Utah, not a chain or anything. Along with their Focaccia Sandwich their pizzas were amazing. After I left the place was bought by one of the workers there and she ran it into the ground. Sad. Since then I have been trying to find something close to the sauce they had for their pizza. I think i have found it. Thanks to Laura Flowers of the The Cooking Photographer for this recipe.

    I make pizza sauce at home as well. I love this recipe, and looks great. I add minced onion or shallots in it.

    @Pam I have been thinking of that, this sauce is good by itself but it would be a great base for a more robust sauce. @Steven, thanks!

      I am not sure, if I don’t use it all I put it in a jar and freeze it. I would say a couple weeks or so in the frige.

    I just made the recipe but with crushed tomatoes which I then used my hand blender to puree. It smells delicious and I cant wait for my dough to be finished rising so I can taste it.

    I’m sitting here waiting for my dough to rise and looking for a good sauce recipe. I too worked at a wonderful pizza restaurant but have yet to reproduce the sauce or crust but I get very excited every time I make another attempt! I guess what’s interesting is that most of the comments are from those of us heady with anticipation.. Hunger, is once again the finest ingredient.

    A pizza sauce with no garlic? How can that be?

      I does have garlic powder in it. Obviously this is a quick answer to pizza sauce so garlic powder was the way to go. If you have a cooked pizza sauce or one that uses fresh garlic that you would like to share, I would love to try it and even post it here.

    Just tried this fabulous pizza sauce,thanks Lee for posting it!

    I adapted it a bit, used fresh garlic, one clove and a quarter of small Spanish onion. Pour enough oil in to cover the bottom of the pan chop the onion really fine brown it add the garlic soften that and add the rest of the ingredients as in the original. Mix it up a lot and slowly warm it up just a bit. Low heat for about 10 mins. It’s ready after that and is totally awesome.
