I feel like this post is ridiculously overdue. My most popular post here on Home in the Finger Lakes is without a doubt Homemade Pizza Seasoning. It seemed only natural to create a pizza sauce to go with it, it took some time but I finally got a pizza sauce I am happy with.
I have said it before, and I meant it, pizza seasoning is my go to seasoning. I love the blend of spices, and always have a mason jar of it mixed up in my pantry. So when I was mixing up my pizza sauce the first thing I reached for was my pizza seasoning.
I was not disappointed.
The Homemade Pizza Seasoning was a quick and very easy way to make a flavorful pizza sauce.
And can we just talk about the consistency of the pizza sauce for a minute? For a long time I used the same thing on my pizza I did not my spaghetti: store bought jarred sauce. I frequently had soggy crusts, spotty sauce coverage, and pour flavor. All of these problems where solved when I started using this pizza sauce that is the perfect consistency for smearing on crusts.
- 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
- 6 fluid ounces warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 teaspoons Homemade Pizza Seasoning
In a small bowl, combine tomato paste, water, Parmesan cheese, honey, and Homemade Pizza Seasoning; mix together, breaking up any clumps of cheese.
The sauce should sit for 30 minutes to blend flavors, taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Spread over pizza dough and prepare pizza as desired.
