Using a can of tomato paste, olive oil, and spice from the rack I’ve made a yummy sauce for pizza at home. A good jar of Pizza Sauce can cost some serious coins depending on where you shop. Time and money-saving is my life so whenever I’m in a pinch for either this is my go-to recipe. With tomato paste costs as low as $.39 and a few tablespoons of my best olive oil being mere pennies, the cost of this recipe is well under $1.

The original recipe sauce used butter and was heated on the stovetop. I’ve stopped using butter in this recipe and found that heating it wasn’t necessary.

Instructions

This is a no-cook recipe needing nothing more than measuring equipment and optional mortar and pestle. Alternatively, you could use a small blender like a Nutri-Bullet.

Hand blend method– In a bowl, whisk together the tomato paste and olive oil until slick. In a mortar and pestle and the parmesan and spices to ground finely. Add the spices with the water to the bowl and whisk until smooth. If you opt-out of crushing the spices, simply add them to the bowl whole and whisk as noted.

Blender method– Add the water and oil to the blender cup first so that the paste does not stick to the bottom. Follow by adding the spices, parmesan cheese, and tomato paste before blending until smooth. This will make the sauce closer to the texture of pasta sauce but the flavors are more concentrated and delicious.
