Made Easy Pizza Sauce Is An Upgrade!

For those of you who use store-bought pizza sauce for your pizza, do not worry because this is a judge-free zone. Once upon a time, I too made my pizzas using the pizza sauce that I have purchased from the grocery store.

Even with the store-bought pizza sauce, my pizzas would taste superb. At the moment, you could not tell me anything about not using pizza sauce from a jar.

From my perspective, if my pizza is already incredible, why should I do extra work just to make pizza sauce?

Well, the answer to that question is simple. You may think your pizzas are incredible, but your taste buds have not experienced anything yet until you make pizza sauce from scratch.

The right way, of course.

Why Put In The Work For The Thick And Rich Easy Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe?

Why put in the work to make pizza sauce when you can buy it at the store? Equally important as the question, there is a reason I keep calling this recipe “made easy pizza sauce.”

Moreover, this recipe is a lot easier to make than I thought. Then again, I can admit that I am lazy sometimes.

As a pizza connoisseur, I always look at videos that can help me perfect my pizza recipes.

Eventually, I notice that most of the pizza-making videos that I watch involve making this pizza sauce from scratch, so I figured that it would not hurt to attempt to make a pizza sauce from scratch myself.

This led to the development of my thick and rich easy homemade pizza sauce recipe, which will take your pizza to the next level.

Is Pizza Sauce Thick And Rich Or Thin?

Pizza sauce is not necessarily thick or thin. Whether it is made easy pizza sauce or not, the pizza sauce will be thick or thin depending on how the sauce is made.

For me, I like a thick and rich easy homemade pizza sauce recipe that is bold and rich in flavor. It is cool if you like a thin pizza sauce, but that will not cut it for me.

The thing about thin pizza sauce is that it is too watery for my liking.

Can I Use Ketchup As Pizza Sauce?

In light of wanting to use ketchup as a pizza sauce, I applaud you for thinking outside the box.

For me, I will have to pass on using ketchup as a pizza sauce, unless I am creating a whole new sauce altogether and ketchup is one of the ingredients.

What Can I Substitute For Thick And Rich Pizza Sauce?

There are not many options to replace pizza sauce with when you are not creative. Now, when you think outside the box, the possibilities for your pizza are endless with just the pizza sauce alone.

I love pizza! My go-to pizza to eat consists of supreme pizza or pepperoni pizza, however, they both use pizza sauce.

Supreme and pepperoni pizza may use pizza sauce, however, they do not negate the pizzas that do not use pizza sauce. Some of the best pizzas I have eaten didn’t use any pizza sauce.

For instance, buffalo chicken pizza will use buffalo sauce instead of pizza sauce. Some pizza chefs may even use ranch dressing for the sauce as well.

Another example is pizza using pesto sauce. I’m about to tell you all a secret. If you make a pizza using a thick and rich pesto sauce, use chicken, bacon, black olives, tomatoes, and mozzarella as the toppings.

You’re welcome. Yes, I am saying you’re welcome in advance because you will be thanking me for this awesome pizza. You never know, the recipe may be on Foodzetic sooner than you think.

Last, but certainly not least, we have pizza that uses one of the best sauces to ever do it, and that sauce is BBQ sauce. You can do whatever with the thick and rich BBQ sauce and your pizza will come out good.

For me, I like to go the classic route. A BBQ pizza with onions, cheese, and juicy, tender chicken cut to delightful, bite-size pieces.

Should You Cook Pizza Sauce?

I will say yes to this question, however, I do not think that it is a necessary step. The reason is that once the pizza is in the oven the pizza sauce will cook.

For the thick and rich easy homemade pizza sauce recipe, we will cook the made easy pizza sauce, then set the sauce on the pizza dough.

What Is The Difference Between Marinara Sauce And Pizza Sauce?

Both, the marinara sauce and pizza sauce are made in the same matter, for the most part, however, there is one thing that differentiates the two sauces from one another.

Marinara utilizes cooked tomatoes, while pizza sauce is made using raw tomatoes.

Can You Use Pasta Sauce For Pizza?

You can use pasta sauce for your pizza, however, all the pasta sauce I came across came from a jar at the grocery store. If you do not have a problem with that, then use that as a substitute for pizza sauce.

Again, sauce from scratch is better than sauce from the store, but that is my opinion.
