How to Make Pizza Sauce Special

When making homemade pizza sauce, you can substitute any herbs and spices you’d like. You can buy jars of blended herbs and spices labeled, “Italian Seasoning” that will work just as well. Fresh herbs can also be substituted for dried herbs. In general, you should substitute one teaspoon of dried herbs for each tablespoon of fresh herbs. This is a general guideline, so taste your sauce once you’ve added your herbs to make sure it is to your liking. Dried herbs lose their taste over time, so if you’ve had your jar for a while, you may need a bit more in your sauce. You can also add a splash of red wine to your pizza sauce to give it some extra flavor and depth.
