Pizza Sauce Recipe
I’ve been playing around with this pizza sauce for a while and every time I think about sharing the recipe I decide that it’s too boring and move onto something else.
Silly since pizza is truly a universal food that almost everyone enjoys.
Plus, homemade pizzas are the best tasting pies ever!
Homemade Pizza Sauce Without Sugar
Alan and I order out for pizza far too often, so I’ve been sneaking in some homemade pizzas instead of dialing for delivery.
At times it can be convenient to order out, but I always feel like we might as well be playing the Lotto with the money we spend at our pizzeria.
Instead we should toss those bucks into the wishing well! Am I right?!
Once you start making your own pizza dough and sauce you’ll see how inexpensive and easy it is to make on your own.
Plus, not only is this sauce super easy to make, it’s also made without any sweetener.
This sauce does have a pinch of red pepper flakes that heightens the flavor bringing a little zest to the sauce.
Add the sauce on this no rise whole wheat pizza dough. Easy and delicious!

Can This Sauce Be Frozen?
Yes, make this pizza sauce in advance and freeze in 1/2 cup portions. I use a vacuum sealer, but any freezer safe ziplock bag or container can be used.
Use within 3 months for the best tasting sauce. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before using.
Can Fresh Tomatoes Be Used In Place of Canned?
You’ll need about 2 pounds of tomatoes when substituting fresh tomatoes for canned. Remove the skin and prepare as noted in the recipe card.
