There was a time when buying Pizza sauce was not possible as they weren’t available in stores. I used to use Tomato Ketchup/sauce as the substitute for pizza sauce. When pizzas with tomato ketchup lacked a sense of satisfaction, I had to look out for other options. That’s when I stumbled across a recipe by SAMS_Club. Ever since I tried the recipe, I never had to look elsewhere.
Over the last few years, a few tweaks were made to the recipe to suit our liking. I usually make a large batch of the sauce and refrigerate. For us, the sauce doesn’t last for more than a week as it is used up in no time.

    Shilpa, Tomato sauce and tomato ketchup are different. However, you can substitute sauce with ketchup. Tomato paste is puree. Hope this helps 🙂
