A good, tangy pizza sauce is so easy to make at home, there's no need to waste money on it at the store. It doesn't take up much more time than opening a can either.
Normally, I just open a can of tomato sauce and then proceed with the herbs and cheeses, omitting the tomatoes and paste, but in this recipe I show you how to make it if you don't happen to have a can of tomato sauce.
On to the recipe!
1 (15 oz or so, the small cans) can of tomatoes or diced tomatos, DO NOT drain
1 little can of tomato paste
1 tablespoon fresh grated asiago cheese
1 tablespoon fresh grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon romano cheese
1/2 teaspoon each of:
sugar (yes! I said it! secret ingredient, it will help cut the acidity of the tomatoes too)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Depending what kind of pizza you're making, you can add a pinch of dried red pepper flakes here too.
Dump everything into a blender and whizz!
That's it! I wouldn't recommend microwaving heating it at this point, it really needs to simmer a bit. Leftovers warm in the microwave just fine.
