Pizza sauce is tomato based sauce prepared by blenching tomatoes and spiced with herbs and garlic. Essentially it is used as a spread for the pizza base before topping and baking pizza.
While you can easily get hundreds of option in a store, but it cannot match the content of preparing a homemade pizza sauce. To be honest, i was always, huge fan of domino’s veg pizza. until one day, when i realised how easy is to prepare pizza sauce. I knew preparing pizza is an easy task, but was always skeptical about pizza sauce recipe. I even use the same pizza sauce recipe in pasta, spaghetti and lasagna. I use the same sauce to prepare pizzas in oven and also pizzas on tawa or stove top.
