2 Minute Pizza Sauce is a refrigerator staple that you should never go without. If you love homemade pizza, you are going to love homemade pizza sauce. Whip it up in 2 minutes or less!
We’re big fans of the 2 minute pizza sauce. When making pizza at home, it is usually for a quick and easy meal, and it is so frustrating when you realize you don’t have anything for sauce! We make a lot of things from scratch, including sauces, but sometimes we run out and don’t realize it and have a crust in desperate need of sauce. That’s where this quick sauce comes in. The ingredients are always in the pantry, and it comes together so quickly that we don’t have to feel too burdened by the lack of foresight. After years and years of depending on this sauce, it still makes a darn good pizza to this day.
Make sure to use plain tomato sauce, and not spaghetti sauce or any other jarred sauce with additives, as that will change the flavor.
Fresh vs. Dried Herbs:
We love how easy it is to just stick with dried herbs. It’s part of what makes this a truly 2 minute pizza sauce! If you want to use fresh herbs, you certainly can substitute those in! Fresh herbs will spoil more quickly than dried, so you will want to use your pizza sauce within a week or less and only use the freshest herbs you can find.
Garlic Options for 2 Minute Homemade Pizza Sauce:
We love the taste of fresh garlic in pizza sauce, but you can always use garlic powder or granules for a bit of time saving!
Do I need to cook the sauce before storing?
Not at all! Pizza sauce does not need to be cooked until you’ve spread it on your pizza dough and are ready to bake your pizza!
You can store your pizza sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 2 weeks!

Great pizza sauce! It’s the only one I use now. It is flavorful and think, just the way we like it!
That is far the easiest pizza sauce recipe I’ve made and it’s not time consuming at all
Just awesome! Thanks!
Best pizza sauce ever! I will never again use jarred marinara on my pizza!
Paste only comes in 6 oz and 15 oz, I assumed this and made it with 1 can of each (8 oz sauce 6 oz paste) & Voila!!! So good! Beats any pizza sauce on the market. Yum! I also used this on your Stromboli Recipe! Yum yum again! I have yet to find one of your recipes that is not scrumptious! Thanks for making me look great in the kitchen!
I just made this – I love this – I added a tablespoon of sugar – but det
Oh my goodness. This sauce and your homemade frozen pizza are so good.Husband doesn’t even want to go out for pizza anymore. He says mine is better. To be honest I should have told him I just copied from you. One thing I did do was to purchase a bag of small cardboard pizza rounds to keep them on while freezing.I used cling film to protect the pizza and they stacked like little soldiers. I needed to remember to sprinkle a little corn meal on the forms so the pizzas would be able to be removed easier. So many many thanks. I also found it easier to use a pastry mat to roll them out. When time to put on pizza round all I had to do was pick up mat and turn over . Slick and easy. THANK you
Hi I want to try this but I’m confused about tomato sauce and paste – is the sauce the type you put on your meals and the paste the type
For cooking ?
Tomato paste is quite thick, and more condensed. It generally comes in a small 6oz can or tube. Tomato sauce can be found in a regular 15oz can. They are both used for cooking.
Hunts tomato sauce
Hunts tomato paste
Both in the canned tomato sectipn of your store.
They sell cans of “Tomato Sauce.” Make sure you look for that. That is not the same as the ready made “Pasta Sauce” that you just heat up and use for spaghetti sauce. The Tomato Sauce and “Tomato Paste” should be in the same aisle at the market. Tomato Paste come in a skinnier can than the sauce.
Can’t wait to try this pizza sauce. Thank you! I so needed this. Now I’m off to getting your pizza dough recipe. Thank you in advance.
Can you freeze this sauce. Have been looking for a good homemade pizza sauce and this one looks like it might fit the bill.
Yes you can!
This pizza sauce is delicious! I was in a rush and didn't have any pizza sauce, so I tried this. I'm never making any other recipe.
