Best EVER Pizza Sauce | Real Housemoms

Last week I shared the easiest and yummiest homemade pizza dough with you and promised to share this equally delicious pizza sauce with you this week and I will always keep my promises sooooo here it is. I’ve done the spaghetti sauce on the pizza dough before but it never tastes like my favorite pizza from up the street. I went on a search of Pinterest and found this recipe posted on Food.com. I had to try it because the person that posted it said it was given to them as a wedding gift. You know it HAS to be good if someone gives it as a wedding gift, right? Let me tell you that I wasn’t disappointed. It was soooo good. I was just tasting it with a spoon as it cooked and loved it. I ended up making the Easy Peasey Pizza Dough Bread Sticks from last week so that I could dip them in this sauce. It would be perfect for more than just pizza too. You could use it for your calzones or meatball subs or bread sticks like me.

The original recipe calls for diced onion and celery. I used these but I was worried that if my little guys saw a more chunky pizza sauce they’d complain or pick off the onions and celery that I wanted them to eat. At first I tried a very small chop and hoped they would sort of break up or get smaller as they cooked but they were still large enough for my picky guy to notice so I pulled out the blender and pureed them after sauteing them but before I added the tomato sauce and paste. I had also never thought of adding fennel seed to my pizza sauce but let me tell you I’m so glad I did. It really adds something to the sauce and makes it killer. I made a big batch of it and plan on freezing some to use for fast dinners later. Give it a shot, you’ll be super happy you did.
