Copycat Pizzeria Pizza Sauce Recipe Notes:
- When I make this homemade pizza sauce recipe I like to make a double batch and freeze the rest. I divide the pizza sauce among small freezer-safe containers. This way I just pull what I need from the freezer when I need it.
- This sauce will keep for up to 6 months in the freezer. Just defrost it in the refrigerator overnight and give it a good stir before using.
- This pizza sauce will keep for up to 1 week in the refrigerator when kept in an airtight container. Just give it a quick stir before using!
