Great Authentic Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe


  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 500 grams can whole/chopped Italian plum tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons concentrated tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons sugar


In a large saucepan, gently saute the onion in the oil until transparent.

Add the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Once simmering, add the tomato puree, the vinegar, and sugar.

Simmer for a full hour, using a wooden spoon to break up any tomato pieces.

If the sauce still has pieces of tomato, pass through a sieve before bottling and storing it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Spread thinly on pizza, use over pasta with grated, strong, hard cheese, or use as a base for more complex meat sauces for pasta.
