Laura's Pizza Sauce
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder*
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  1. In medium sized bowl, add tomato paste, olive oil and water; stir.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
  3. Ideally, you should allow the sauce to sit at room temperature for thirty minutes for flavors to develop from the herbs.
*Mike's original recipe uses 3 tablespoons garlic powder, but this seems very excessive. We recommend starting with no more than 1 teaspoon garlic powder (you can even use less), and add more, to taste, if desired.

  1. Was this supposed to be 3 Tbs or tsp. My mouth smells bad of garlic now and was a little garlic hot whole eating. The flavor was good though just think bit too much garlic.

    • Sorry for the extreme delay, your comment slipped through! Yes, that seems very excessive. I double checked Mike’s recipe, with the original he sent us and the one he posted, and it is with 3 tablespoons. But even 3 teaspoons is a lot. I’ve modified the recipe with our recommendations. Thank you!
