    This Passata Pizza Sauce is my go to pizza sauce whenever I’m making a pizza from scratch. 

    Passata Pizza Sauce

    It’s very fresh and authentic tasting and most people don’t realize it but having a good tomato sauce for your pizza is key to making a great pizza.

    You don’t want to just slap on tomato paste and hope for the best.

    Because that will give it a plain raw flavor that even the best ingredients can’t mask.

    What you want is a simple yet delicious homemade sauce that is versatile and goes great on any pizza and I have just the recipe for that.

    This is by far my favorite way to make homemade pizza sauce, it’s so simple too.

    This recipe makes enough for two large pizzas, cut the recipe in half if you’re cooking just one.



    Is possible when you make it like this from scratch. Because Passata sauce has no salt in it, you really can omit the salt all together if you choose. 

    Note: You can omit the anchovies paste if you like, but I encourage you to try it with. Stores in a airtight container up to 24 hours in the fridge.

    I am so thrilled you are reading one of my recipes, if you made this recipe i’d love to hear about it! Thank you very much for reading and until next time see ya in the kitchen. Don’t want to miss a recipe? Sign up for our NEWSLETTER delivered right to your inbox!

    Jacqueline, In your recipe for Passata Pizza Sauce. It calls for 3tbsp of fresh oregano, but nowhere does say when to add it. Also are your tablespoon measurements in US or Imperial.

    Hello Daniel

    Sorry for the late reply. You add the oregano with all the other spices (all together) and the tbsp are in imperial
