Home Made Organic Marinara Sauce For Pizza

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 | 11:07 PM

For many years I have been experimenting on making marinara sauce for pizza. I used to struggle with the consistency because the pizza would always get soggy. Though making a thicker chutney type sauce helped, it took a lot of mess ups before I finally got it right. It was for the 24x24 event that I used the marinara sauce to bake different shapes pizza.. Over the years it has become organic and I think it stores well. I think it was very simple to prepare and most of the ingredients used were from the shelves of Trader Joe's.


Can opener
Cutting Board
Measuring spoons
Heavy bottom pan
Hand blender


Organic Onions - 1  big (diced)
Diced Organic  Tomato - 1 28 oz can
Organic Garlic - 2 cloves
Organic Basil Leaves - 10
Pasta Seasoning  - 1/2 tsp (spicy version)
Organic Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Organic Sugar - 1/2 - 1 tsp ( depends on how tart you like your sauce)


1. Heat the heavy bottom pan and add olive oil.

2. Saute onions and garlic along with some salt until they are well cooked.

3. Add the the can of tomatoes and allow it to cook on  5 minutes medium high heat. Add all the seasonings and allow it to cook for another 2 minutes.

4. Using a hand held blender roughly blend the mixture. Add basil and sugar, store in a bottle and use when needed.

  13. Looks very good. For some reason I thought marinara sauce had Oregano in it. Maybe just my imagination.
    BTW, I saw someone (don't remember now) blog about the ice cream cone cupcakes. What they did is put the cupcake batter in a liner in the cup and invert the cone on the top. It was kind of wonky, but the idea is to make the batter rise in so that the batter won't make the cones soggy. Thought I will share with you.
