I posted this recipe years ago after someone requested that I split it out of the homemade pizza post (that homemade pizza post has incidentally been updated here and finally here with a whole new series on perfect homemade pizza).

I happily obliged back then, and now I can attest that this is still the best and easiest pizza sauce recipe in the world.

I’ve been using it almost weekly for years and it’s so good, I have no desire to ever use another pizza sauce recipe (strong words, I know). Simple and delicious!

FAQs for Homemade No-Cook Pizza Sauce

Do I need to use tomato paste if I’m using fresh tomatoes?

The tomato paste helps thicken the sauce so just keep an eye on the consistency if using fresh tomatoes.

Do you use ground or leafy oregano?

I use leafy oregano.

Can I adjust the amount of sugar I use?

Of course- its just a matter of preference.

How can I use fresh roma tomatoes instead of canned tomatoes?

You could peel them and then blend them up although the taste will be pretty different than using canned tomatoes.
