I made this sauce as is. (I don't like reviews that rate recipes when changes have been made. I want to know what it tastes like as is) It was REALLY good. I let it sit for about 4 hours to infuse the ingredients before I used it. I doubled the recipe and will freeze the leftover part. I'll be using this again!
Delicious! Went great with the homemade pizza dough. Taste actually stood out against the dough and the toppings unlike on some take out pizzas and bought sauces. Very easy and quick to make. Wouldn't hesitate to serve this to company.
Nice pizza sauce with plenty of flavor. I only used about 1 1/2 Tbsp. of water because we like a thicker sauce. Next time I might hit it with my immersion blender to make it a little smoother. I love that this is a stir-together sauce with no cooking. Will be my go-to pizza sauce from now on.
Simply delicious and it made the whole house smell like an italian bistro!
This is a fantastic recipe! I followed the recipe on everything except I added roasted garlic to it and stewed tomatoes that I blended briefly.
Was light and fresh and a smash hit with my 5 and 3 year olds!!! Definately a keeper!!
This recipe has become a favorite whenever we are making pizza. This is a definted 'keeper'.
I've made this sauce several times; it's quick & easy and has wonderful flavor. Sometimes I add some wine, I like tawny port, & simmer for a bit before using in another recipe. I have served it with sausages and pasta to family. It's a wonderful quick recipe for a homemade sauce I would serve to anyone.
I have made this sauce so many times. I always increase the garlic and leave out the water. I also puree everything in the blender to make less chunky as my husband and I prefer it better.
YUM! So simple to make, very versatile, and oh so flavorful!!
Wonderful flavor! I used garlic/basil flavored diced tomatoes. I used the sauce with the Spinach and Ricotta Pizza in the same July 2009 CL issue. Will make again and again!
Made this with a little extra basil and garlic, and used paste with italian seasonings. It was so easy and yummy! Will definitely make again and again! My new staple pizza/marinara sauce!
I sauteed the garlic with the olive oil for a minute. I used a 6 oz can of tomato paste with tomato pesto, Contadina brand, instead of the plain tomato paste and cut back the oregano to 1 tsp. I cooked the sauce for a few minutes and did not add any water. This was delicious!
I microwaved the oil & garlic for about 30 seconds to bring out the flavor, then stirred together the rest of the ingredients except for the water. It was a good consistency so no water was necessary. Very tasty and easy!
