To make the homemade pizza sauce recipe from The Kitchn, mix 1 32-ounce can diced or whole tomatoes, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, 6 to 8 chopped garlic cloves and black pepper in a food processor or blender. Add in some olive oil, and blend until sauce is fully pureed. Add extra olive oil, salt and fresh-cracked pepper, and blend for a few more seconds.

The recipe does not require cooking. After blending the ingredients, spread the sauce onto a pizza dough, using the back of the spoon to distribute the sauce evenly. Store any unused sauce in the fridge. The sauce is good for up to one week.

To freeze extra sauce for up to three months, scoop the sauce with a spoon, mold in muffin tins and refrigerate until the sauce turns solid. Remove the frozen cubes, and place them in a freezer container. To use on pizza, allow the cubes to melt overnight or put them in a microwave for 30 seconds. This pizza sauce recipe makes enough sauce for 8 medium pizzas.
