How to make pizza sauce | Home made pizza sauce

Pizza sauce is easy to make at home, if you have italian herbs in hand. I never use store bought pizza sauce so far, always i make on my own. I tried different version of pizza sauce from various source, finally this recipe is a keeper for me.

Adding carrot gives creamy texture to the sauce and i love this sauce for that and it's easy to spread. I dont known how long we can store this, usually i make and use it on the same day.Now over to the recipe.


Tomato - 3 nos
Carrot - 1 medium size
Capsicum - 1/2 of medium size
Garlic - 2-4 nos
Oregano - 1/2 tsp
Basil - 1/2 tsp
Rosemary -1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Chili flakes - 1/2 tsp
Tomato ketchup -1 tsp
Olive oil - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste

Cut the carrot and capsicum roughly and then make cross like slit in tomatoes on top & bottom.

Pressure cook the veggies (tomato, carrot & capsicum)with 1/2 cup of water for 2 whistle.

Once the pressure is released, remove the skin of tomato once it's cooled and put everything in blender without water and grind into smooth paste along with garlic.

Now heat the olive oil in kadai and add the tomato paste. 

Then add all the spices(Oregano,Basil,Rosemary,Pepper Powder) along with salt.

Bring into boil and cook it in medium flame for 5 mins .Finally add chili flakes and ketchup , give a good stir and switch off the flame.

Home made pizza sauce is ready
