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.
- Sauce should sit for 30 minutes to blend flavors, taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Spread over pizza dough and prepare pizza as desired.
