Homemade Pizza Sauce | Chunky and Vegan

In this day and age, we are so accustomed to buying readymade things off of supermarkets that we don’t even give it a second thought. On one hand, I realise that most of us have a paucity of time but on the other hand, is it more about convenience. Either way, I can guarantee that anything homemade is definitely better for you because 1) you have total control over the amount of ingredients 2) it is free from chemicals, preservatives and artificial colour which is better for your body. Therefore, I have a bunch of homemade recipes for you on the blog and in the same series if today’s recipe Homemade Pizza Sauce. I can assure you that this pizza sauce is so delicious, aromatic and tastes so fresh when applied generously on your pizza base.

I bet, you will fall in love with this recipe and will make it every other week in huge batches just like I’ve been doing for the last couple of years. Moreover, what if I tell you that this magic sauce doubles as a quick and convenient pasta sauce as well. You just have to boil your favourite kind of pasta and toss it in this sauce. Also, one more thing to note is that I like my Homemade Pizza Sauce to be chunky and thick but if you like yours smoother, you can perform an additional step at the end by blending the sauce into a purée of sorts.

Additionally, If you like this Homemade Pizza Sauce recipe, I am happy to let you know that I have many other amazing Italian recipes on my blog. Some of my favourites are Spinach Pesto Pasta, Penne Arrabiata Pasta, Basil Pesto Spaghetti, Mushroom Aglio Olio Spaghetti Pasta and Homemade Garlic Bread. Also, if you make any of my recipes, I’d love to see your beautiful creations. So, please don’t forget to share and tag me in your post on Instagram.
