World's Best Pizza Sauce

I am a bit of a pizza addict. 

I think of it as a food group and try to treat it as such by eating as much of it as I can, as often as I can.  And I prefer to make my own pizza because I am A) Cheap, and B) It tastes soooo much better than anything given to you by a guy in a Nissan Sentra. 

Pizza Sauce is KEY!

Although I intend to turn every single one of my favorite foods into a pizza over the course of the next year, everyone has a go-to pizza.  Mine is Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza, which is an offshoot of the Chicken Bacon Ranch Ciabatta Bread sammies my husband loves so much (the recipe for ciabatta and the sammy will follow soon).  But the reason it's my go-to pizza is because I have spent years failing to make a decent red pizza sauce and so my classic pepperoni pizza...well,... it sucked. A lot.


Oh My LANTA!  

This pizza sauce was sooo good!

Perfectly sweet and salty, with just the right savory herb flavor.  And the perfect consistency, something I could never get right before.  This Pizza Sauce is simply perfect in every way. 

SO, here it is.  My recipe for THE: 

The World's Best Pizza Sauce
  • 1 6 oz Can of Tomato Paste 
  • 6 oz Water 
  • 2 ounces freshly grated Parmesan cheese (this is a to taste kind of thing...I like a lot!)
  •  1/2 tsp Granulated Garlic
  • 1 TBSP Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Basil
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Marjoram (this is key)
  • Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes
  • Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
Mix it all up and let it sit at room temperature for at least half hour so the flavors combine.  Then slather it all on my Perfect Pizza Dough, and top with nummy meats and veggies and Voila!  Perfect Pizza! 

So, now that we all have an equally good chance of making the world's best pepperoni pizza, what's your favorite non-traditional pizza flavor combo?   My next experiment is going to be Paella Pizza, but I'd love some off-the-beaten trail recommendations from you too!
