How to Make Easy 5 Minute Pizza Sauce?
Before we begin, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you, my sweet husband is not a certified chef. Truth be told, however, he has a fantastic repertoire of recipes tho. Six! Six in total that is!
This in no way is a complaint! On the contrary. When he does make his delicious meals, I’m totally thrilled! Whatever he chooses to cook, you know it’s going to be delicious because he has the tried and true method. Practice until it’s perfected!
His recipes include Greens & Beans, Grilled Marinated Steaks, Ginger Salmon, Linguini & Clam Sauce, Hot dogs and steamers, and….scrumptious pizza!
One day maybe I will share those recipes with you as well! (Would you like the linguini and clam recipe? Leave me a comment below!)
In the meantime, this post is dedicated to my sweet and darling husband. Without him, I would be lost! 🙂
Are you in the mood for a quick and easy pizza night?
Time to skip the jarred sauce and opt for homemade instead!
Home-baking pizza is one of life’s simple joys.
The smell of fresh dough, fresh basil, and tomatoes in a wood-burning oven, the crisp crackle of cheese on top—it doesn’t get much better than this!
Homemade dough is the best! In this instance, Andrew used two store bought dough balls since he was short on time!

What Type of Cheese is Best for Pizza Making?
When it comes to making delicious homemade pizza, the type of cheese you use can make all the difference.
For a classic flavor, mozzarella is always a safe bet. Even better, for an added level of creaminess and flavor, try using a blend of mozzarella and shredded Parmesan.
If you’re feeling adventurous, why not try using some crumbled feta on your next pie? Its sharp taste pairs particularly well with toppings like spinach and artichoke.
And if you want to add some extra kick to your pizza, mix in some shredded Pepper Jack or sliced jalapenos.
Top your pizza with shredded mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Then add fresh basil.

Did you catch what the secret ingredient was? It’s the Tuscan Herb Extra Virgin Infused Oil from Saratoga Olive Oil Company. Rather than use a ‘simple’ olive oil, Andrew added the Tuscan Herb Oil which is filled with a fresh herb blend of oregano, basil, garlic, and rosemary for the most amazing sauce and flavor!
