Vegan Tomato Pizza Sauce

I like a really rich pizza sauce: one that is full of herbs and spices, tomatoey, garlicky, and plentiful. Here’s my go-to recipe for pizza sauce that fits my tastebuds and criteria.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins

Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: Italian
Servings: 6


  • -½ – 1 head of garlic
  • -2 small cans of tomato paste
  • -1 Tablespoon of oregano
  • -1 teaspoon each of other ground spices as you like: rosemary, basil, thyme
  • -1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • -1 teaspoon of fresh ground black pepper


  • Add olive oil to small saucepan on medium heat
  • Add garlic to saucepan, stirring until transparent
  • Add two small cans of tomato paste and stir
  • Next, put in your favourite savoury spices and salt/pepper
  • If you’d like it to be spicy (I always do!) add a finely chopped jalapeño or Thai chilli pepper
  • Mix everything together, simmer for 15 minutes, and set aside


This sauce is great to use as a dipping sauce for breadsticks!
