When crafting the perfect homemade pizza, the secret is in the sauce. Our exceptional sauce for homemade pizza is inspired by our love of California-grown tomatoes, onions, and garlic. We think most people would agree that the soul of any great pizza lies in its sauce, and our recipe is a total winner!
Homemade pizza has always been a family favorite around here, with its ability to be completely customizable to anyone’s taste preferences. It’s fast, easy, and always a unanimous “YES!”. But what truly elevates our pizza recipe from the rest is the California Grown Pizza Sauce.
When you bite into a slice of pizza, the flavors you experience come largely from the sauce. Our recipe is rich and hearty with canned tomato paste and canned plum tomatoes from California, olive oil, onions, garlic, dried herbs, and a touch of balsamic vinegar. Together these ingredients cook down into a thick luscious sauce in just over 20 minutes.
