3 Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipes

3 homemade pizza sauce recipes

Not long ago, one of our customers asked us if we had any pizza sauce recipes on our site to accompany our Pizza Dough recipe. Unfortunately, we didn't. Seriously, who makes a pizza dough without pizza sauce?! So we decided to change that. But we didn't just create one recipe, we created three - 'cause we're just that awesome! We hope at least one of these sauces appeals to your taste buds.

This classic pesto is paired great with artichoke hearts and red onions or mozzarella and tomatoes. If you're a meat eater, chicken is a great addition. This pesto also goes great with pasta or on a sandwich.

1 clove garlic, roughly chopped

Pizza Sauce

We know, we know - this isn't the healthiest recipe. We're not going to pretend it is. We don't even expect you to admit it, but we know some of you will enjoy it! It was a crowd favorite of our taste-testers, after all. We couldn't NOT share it! This is an indulgent recipe that you can enjoy when you're feeling not-so-healthy. It's okay, we won't tell anyone.

Cheesy White Pizza Sauce


1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil
12 cup grated Parmesan cheese

    I am so glad you included sauces other than tomato! So many possibilities for pizza night!

    This sure makes it more of a quick dinner, and a real kid pleaser. I understand for those not wanting to fix the dough, some supermarkets sell raw fresh dough. Around Houston, no, but visiting in Atlanta it was readily available.
