    This is a delicious sauce! I used a can of diced Italian tomatoes, 1 can of tomato sauce instead. I was a delicious change from normal pizza sauce.

    Ms. Cheryl, you are my HERO! I too have had an extremely difficult time finding/making a pizza sauce that is 100% to our liking! THIS IS IT! We make a ton and freeze it (one could also can it if they prefer...which I intend to do in the future...make a super large batch and can it)! EXCELLENT SAUCE!

    Sauce was wonderful! Made as written but used no salt tomato sauce and only added 1/4 teaspoon salt. Was perfect for our low salt diet and husband is wanting to know when we can have pizza again. It is just the two of us so being able to freeze extra sauce is perfect. Thanks for the great recipe.

    I made this last night & it was wonderful, truly! I always just threw in oregano, basil & garlic but this makes mine look sad. I coupled it with the Thin crust pizza dough recipe that was on the same page.
