Pronto Pizza Sauce

This pizza sauce is full of flavor, thick, yet still spreadable, and most importantly delicious! It's an easy recipe to make and is easily doubled or tripled to make extra to have on hand or give away.  You know how great pizza sauce tastes with mozzarella sticks and cheesy bread, so have some on hand for those nights you pop those in the oven.


1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 tsp. honey
1 T. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
6 oz. can tomato paste


In stock pot, heat olive oil until shimmering. Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until garlic is golden being careful not to burn. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Simmer for 15 minutes. If using right away, cool slightly before using on pizza. If making ahead, cool, cover and refrigerate or freeze for longer storage.
