This is the best easy, thick and rich homemade pizza sauce. Simple to make and packed with rich tomato flavour and Italian herbs. Skip the jars of sauce and make your own sauce in less than 30 minutes.



  • 1 box passata
  • 4 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 2 teaspoons garlic granules
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey or sugar
  • optional chilli flakes


  1. Pour the passata into a saucepan and add in the tomato puree and all the herbs. Bring the sauce to a simmer and continue to simmer for about 10 minutes whisking continuously.
  2. Simmering the sauce eliminates the water content of the tomatoes, making your sauce extra thick.
  3. Let the sauce cool before using it on a pizza base. The sauce will thicken further as it cools.
