Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe for Canning
This easy recipe makes the best homemade pizza sauce recipe ever! It is delicious, full of flavor and super easy to make. Of course, pizza sauce can be frozen, but this recipe teaches you step-by-step how to make home-canned pizza sauce from scratch. Using fresh tomatoes and herbs, this recipe will become a family favorite.
Canning your own pizza sauce is much more healthy and affordable than store-bought, and by canning several pints at a time, you can stock your food pantry and have homemade pizza anytime.
What Kind of Tomatoes Make the Best Sauce?
We all know there are probably well over 100 varieties of tomatoes available. But what variety really makes the best sauce?
Tomatoes is one plant that takes some experimenting to figure out what variety is best for you.
When I began gardening I had no idea what variety of tomatoes to grow. But I did know homemade pizza sauce was one item I wanted to add to my home pantry. I found that many used various varieties. But for me, my favorite quickly became the Roma tomato. Here’s why:
- They are a determinate, meaning they grow to 3-4-feet tall and produce. This works great in a small space such as raised beds or containers.
- Roma’s are a small meaty tomato without a lot of juice and seeds. Which makes them great for quicker cooking and less processing time.
Another variety you may like to try are the San Marzano. This variety is an indeterminate meaning it continues to grow all season so, these will need to be trellised and pruned.
I found the San Marzano difficult to control in my raised bed gardens.
Can I Use Canned Tomatoes?
Sure! Just a warning as with anything else. Store-bought canned tomatoes do not taste as delicious as homegrown. But, you can also can your own tomatoes and use them.
But instead of working hard to can an bunch of tomatoes to open and make homemade sauce, freeze them whole in bags and they will keep for 1 year. I always freeze tomatoes and preserve them later – it makes them so much easier to peel too. This is also a great way to store them until you have enough for a full canning run.
If you cannot grow your own, I’d recommend you pick up some from a local produce stand or a local farmer’s market.
How Do You Thicken Homemade Pizza Sauce?
The key to a thick sauce or paste is the amount of juice your tomatoes have in them. This is why I love to use Roma.
As I said, they are super meaty and excellent for cooking and making sauces. Simmering sauce on the stove for several hours helps to reduce the liquid too. Some describe adding corn starch to their pizza sauce recipe, but I don’t do this.
The use of a thickener, such as corn starch, is not recommended. The only approved thickener for canning is Clear Jel. I don’t use either. Here is how I cook my pizza sauce down to being thicker.
- 1 (28-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2 medium cloves garlic, grated on microplane grater (about 2 teaspoons)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Pinch red pepper flakes
- Kosher salt
- 2 (6-inch) sprigs fresh basil with leaves attached
- 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and split in half
- 1 teaspoon sugar

Pizza Potato Wrap and Salad Potato Wrap
- 4 cups roughly chopped gold potatoes
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cup tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
- 3 to 4 tablespoons water
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced mushrooms (optional)
- 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped red onion
- 2 to 3 fresh basil leaves
- 2 to 3 lettuce leaves
- 1/3 cup alfalfa sprouts or other sprouts of choice
- 3 to 4 tomato slices
- 3 to 4 cucumber slices

Spread the Pizza Sauce on the wraps and top with the mushrooms (if using), red bell pepper, red onion, and fresh basil. Fold the wraps up gently and serve immediately.
To make the Salad Wrap, arrange the lettuce leaves, alfalfa sprouts, tomato slices, cucumber slices, red onion, and basil or parsley on the wraps. Fold the wraps up gently and serve immediately.

Easy Homemade Pizza Dough Recipe
this post is all about pizza dough. easy homemade pizza dough. you know, there was a time when i never ever thought i would make bread. it was so intimidating to me. but there was also a time in college when i thought i would never be able to make chocolate chip cookies…. and now i could make french macarons in my sleep. so one day i decided i would just learn how to do this thing. i tested out some friends recipes, some recipes from around the web, tweaked things here and there and settled on a few that i really loved. now its hard to imagine a time when i didn’t eat such luxurious carbs. so it was time to tackle pizza dough. as many of you know, my son has lots of allergies. so pizza is not something we have often – but i wanted to try out some fun dairy free options for him. i decided if i can make bread – i can make pizza dough. and so i did. and it was easy. and delicious. and once you go homemade, you dont go back. so here it is for you folks – easy homemade pizza dough.
you will need a stand mixer for this.
i bet you could do it by hand but i never will. i’m lazy (dont tell anyone).
you will use the hook attachment that comes with the mixer.
once all your ingredients are mixed together and the bowl is ‘clean’ – this is when the dough clings to the hook and not the sides of the bowl – turn it onto a lightly floured surface. knead it by hand a bit and then form it into a round ball.
grease a bowl and plop it right in the middle. cover it with plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot. if you are like me and your hubby is cheap and your house is often freeeeeezing here is a trick: turn your oven on for about a minute. once its warm in there – NOT hot but warm, turn off the oven place your bowl in there to rise. be sure to use a heat proof bowl. leave it to double in size (this will take about and hour). NOTE: i have since gotten even lazier and use the rapid rise yeast. that will only take about 20-30 mind to double
be sure to roll your pizza thin – 1/4 to 1/2 inch. this recipe is not for thin crust & it will puff up a bit when cooking so go thinner than you want the final pizza to be. i hope your pizza turns out as amazing as ours did!! my son was over the MOON excited to have a pizza of his own. we topped it with bbq sauce and chicken and he gobbled it up. i love seeing him so excited about the simple things. he is such a good boy and always so patient about his allergies – it melted my heart to see him so happy about his own ‘safe’ pizza!

12-Inch Pizza Crust
There is no question that pizza can be a satisfying and delicious meal. Making it at home with our simple recipe will put a hot and crispy pie on your table in a little over one hour with very little preparation. Set your table and prepare your toppings, pizza night is on its way. Serve a fun, interactive meal by offering various cheeses, vegetables, and cold cuts so each guest can put on their slices whatever they prefer—there is no wrong combination!
Pizza is a great canvas for a varied and tasty dinner tomato sauce and mozzarella are only the basics. Garnish this tasty crust with anything you'd like from kale pesto to prosciutto, to spicy cheese sauce and sliced ham, or even chocolate spread and fresh fruit for a decadent dessert pizza.
Our ingredients yield a 12-inch pizza—8 tasty slices—with which you can feed 3 to 4 people. Double the measurements to serve more pies, or make both crusts and freeze one for later in the week. Roll out the dough onto a greased, 12-inch pizza pan, or press it into a greased, 9- or 10-inch skillet to make a thicker pizza crust. Before you start, be mindful that if the water in your area is heavily chlorinated or has gone through a water softener, the yeast will not bloom and the dough will not rise—it's always best to use bottled spring water instead of tap water for yeast doughs.
