Basic Pizza Sauce

This sauce is very basic and very good. It makes exactly enough to cover the coconut flour pizza crust recipe. It would be very good with additional veggies pureed in, such as zucchini or leafy greens.


1-2 T of fat for cooking
1 onion
4 large tomatoes
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp dried basil
3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed
salt to taste


Heat the fat or oil in a large skillet. Chop the onion finely in a food processor, then add to the hot oil and saute for about 5 minutes. Puree the tomatoes in the food processor and have them ready.

Stir in the seasonings and add the crushed garlic. Add the pureed tomatoes and stir thoroughly. Add some salt. Let the sauce simmer for about 1-2 hours to cook down. Once the sauce has reached it's desired thickness, remove from heat, adjust the seasonings, and use on your pizza!

You can use the coconut flour crust recipe,

Hazelnut pizza crust recipe, or seed crust recipe.

  2. Yes, please share! That sounds really good!
