Pizza Sauce

Posted on


This is a recipe in progress.  Call me crazy but I LOVE Little Caesars pizza sauce and I am on a mission to get something close.  For now, this is what I am using for pizza sauce at home.  We have a Winco grocery store and they sell a spice blend called “pizza seasoning.”  So far I have been happy with the results.  Making homemade pizza is a lot of work so adding just the pizza seasoning instead of 7 or 8 different spices makes the job easier.  I also start with tomato sauce so I don’t have to take out the blender.  Here is how I made pizza sauce this week…

Pizza Sauce

  • One 33.5 oz container tomato sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons corn syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons pizza seasoning

Simply mix tomato sauce with sweetners and spices.  Use about 1/2 cup pizza sauce for a 14 inch pizza.

  1. You are NOT crazy, I love their sauce too. I will have to try this recipe to see if it comes close. I look forward to any progress you make towards your perfect copy cat recipe!

    • Anita,
      This is still far from what Little Caesars sauce tastes like — it’s just what I have been doing. The pizza spice from Winco makes it rather simple.
      What this recipe still may need is 1) fennel 2) a bit of white pepper instead of black pepper and MSG!!!! 3) lots of unhealthy trans fat oil — I was just reading about the high amounts of MSG (flavor enhancer) and trans fat in all pizza chain sauce.
      We love making our own pizza, it’s just never quite the same. Let’s hope it’s healthier?
      Thanks for looking!
      Suzanne :)
