My kids and I have been making this homemade pizza sauce recipe for a years now. In fact, I cannot remember the last time I bought store bought pizza sauce. It has been THAT long. My family and I love to make pizza, and I finally “figured” out an actually recipe that we love.
The best tomato sauce for pizza.
I had to admit – it is GREAT! You don’t have to chop anything or even cook it. In my mind, simple is always better. I always make a double or triple batch and save some to freeze for the freezer. That way it is ready to go when we want to make a quick pizza, flat bread pizza or our favorite bubble up pizza. It is seriously the best tomato sauce for pizza.
Now that we have been using it so much, I have been keeping mason jar full in the fridge. It is great when we want marinara sauce for dipping. Our family loves it! You can get some super cute Mason jars here on Amazon. I really love these chalk board labels for your mason jars. They are so cute to labels all your sauces in the fridge. Plus you will have the best sauce for pizza.

Is this frugal?
Yes! I was out of my cheap canned crushed tomatoes that I bought with coupons, so I had to pay full price for 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes at Aldi. It cost me $.89. That means, I made 2 jars of Pizza Sauce for $1! One jar of pizza sauce costs normally over $2, so I think I will take the $.50 jar -that is a 75% savings without every clipping a coupon. Plus, since we can often get canned tomatoes for $.10, you COULD save even more money. Talk about frugal!
Make sure you give this easy recipe a try and come back and let us know what you think. Remember, to make a double or triple batch and freeze these. I like to freeze it in either plastic containers or freezer bags. These containers are great to freeze in because they stack so nicely.
