Since I always have some Italian Seasoning on hand, that’s what I used for this sauce recipe.

If you don’t have any and don’t feel like buying some, you can substitute for a combination of dried oregano, dried basil and some dried thyme.

A teaspoon to a teaspoon and a half total should be good for this sauce. But feel free to tweak the quantities for your taste buds.

The average pizza uses about 3/4 cup of pizza sauce so this pizza sauce recipe should be good for about 5 pizzas. Obviously, this depends on the size of the pizza and how much sauce you like on your pizza.

    I made this yesterday and will use it tonight for pizza for my family. I have tasted it and it is delicious. Not spicy and I have decided to use any leftover sauce for spaghetti sauce.
