Homemade Spaghetti/Pizza Sauce

Last Tuesday, I shared with you a pizza recipe, so today I am sharing with you a homemade spaghetti/pizza sauce. This was my first time EVER making a homemade sauce and it was SO simple! I will never buy store bought sauces again. There was enough sauce to use on the pizza and two nights worth of spaghetti dinners. Did I mention it was super good and simple?
Give it a try! :)

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove (diced)
  • ½ small Vidalia onion (diced)
  • 4 Campari tomatoes (diced) OR 14 oz can diced tomato
  • 28 oz pureed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Crushed red pepper (optional, to taste)
  • ½ tsp salt (plus more to taste)
  • Chop up garlic, onions, and tomatoes
  • Olive oil and chopped garlic in a medium sauce pan
  • Rub garlic around the pan and then turn the heat onto medium-high
  • Add in the onions
  • Then add in the diced tomatoes
  • Next add in the pureed tomatoes
  • Stir well and bring to boil
  • Add spices: oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, sugar, crushed peppers (to taste), and salt (to taste)
  • Reduce heat to low simmer
  • Allow sauce to simmer for at least 15 minutes 
  • Place over spaghetti or dough for pizza
