We love love LOVE pizza in this house! We love take out pizza but I also really love to make homemade pizza. This is my go-to sauce for all things pizza related! It's so easy and so yummy, you will never go back to store-bought again!

1 15 oz. Can Tomato Sauce
Heaping 1/2 Cup Finely Diced Onion
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 Teaspoon Dried Parsley
1/4 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
1/4 Teaspoon Basil
1/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
3/4 Teaspoon Granulated Sugar
Salt & Pepper, to taste

In a small saucepan on medium high heat add your butter with your olive oil. Once the butter has melted into the olive oil, add your onions and season with salt & pepper. Cook until the onions start to turn very light golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.

Turn the heat down to medium and add your tomato sauce, all of the seasonings/herbs, and the parmesan cheese. Mix everything well, cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Use right away or let cool and store in a air-tight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Check out some of my recipes that this easy and delicious sauce goes perfect with:


  1. Hi! This looks great! I'm just wondering, do you think this recipe would work if you wanted to process and can the pizza sauce? I love the simplicity of store bought canned sauce but hate all the preservatives and gunk, so I wondered if this would be a good alternative. It'd be nice to can in jars of pizza sized amounts. Thanks!

  2. There is no reason you could not can or even freeze this recipie. I would recommend making your own fresh tomato sauce tho to cut down on the very high sodium in store bought tomato sauce-let alone the cost!


I love hearing from you all!
