Evelyn’s Homemade Pizza Sauce Revision

 Hello, Darlings

Is it hot enough for you? Being retired as I am, and at home must of the time, I don't get to experience many of the weather variants that Florida has to offer. However, I digress from the purpose of this entry.

For several years now, I have made my own pizza for various reasons, such as rise in prices, poor quality and smaller quantity. Remember the Arby's commercial: "Where is the beef?" Well, according to the news and consumer complaints, the former is the bane of many fast food restaurants today.Just yesterday as I was returning home from one of my rare errands, I was surprise a Checker's fast food restaurant was closed, and further surprise from my husband that the restaurant has been closed for about a year.

Nevertheless, today entry is entitled, "Evelyn’s Homemade Pizza Sauce Revision". It is delicious and super easy to make, and I hope you will give it a try.



  • 8 oz can Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 of a 6 oz can Tomato Paste
  • 1/4 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • Pinch Red Pepper Flakes


  1.  Combine the can of tomato sauce and half of the can of tomato paste in a microwave mixing bowl, or a glass measuring 16 oz. cup.
  2. Stir in the brown sugar and spices.
  3. Place mixture in microwave and cook for 2 to 3 minutes; let sit while making pizza crust and prepping toppings.
  4. This sauce tastes the best if you can let it set for an hour or so before using it to let the flavors mingle.
  5. Spread on pizza crust and top with your favorite toppings, and bake as needed.  
  6. This recipes makes enough for one 12" pizza baking in a Betty Crocker's pizza maker for 9 ½ minutes.
