Canning Pizza Sauce

Canning Pizza Sauce

By September 4, 2012

My Son LOVES and I mean LOVES pizza sauce, he will eat a bowl of it for a snack even, and his favorite school lunch is our Homemade Pizza Lunchables  so while making pizza sauce takes a LOT of tomatoes and a lot of time it is something very wroth it at our house so we know just what is in what  is in one of his favorite snacks. I make the following recipe times 4 when I make pizza sauce.

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes
  • Cook Time : 4h 00 min



  • Peel, core and squeeze extra seeds and juice out of tomatoes like this (once peeled and cored I give my tomatos a good squeeze to get extra juice out so the sauce does not have to cook as long).
  • Then run the prepared tomatoes, onions, garlic, carrot, and peppers through the food processor until they are very fine. Then add the vegetables to a large pot along with the rest of the ingredients listed.
  • Simmer 3-4 hours until the sauce is nice and thick.
  • Then add the pizza sauce into sterilized jars leaving 1/2 inch head space and process in a water bath for 25 minutes for pints or in a pressure canner for 10 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure.
