Ketchup Pizza Sauce Recipe

Yields1 ServingPrep Time1 min

This ketchup pizza sauce recipe is perfect for those times when you're ready to make pizza but you're missing a traditional tomato sauce. It pairs perfectly with quick and easy pizza recipes like my 1 minute mini microwave pizza.

 2 tbsp Ketchup
 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 1 pinch Oregano
 1 pinch Fresh Black Pepper
 1 pinch Dried Basil (optional)
 1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

Gather your ingredients as well as a small mixing bowl.


First add the ketchup to the bowl. If you're not working from a bottle, 2 packets of fast food ketchup will work fine.


Add olive oil, oregano, black pepper and whatever other seasonings you like and incorporate them well into the ketchup.


Add this ketchup sauce directly to the pizza crust. Tip: Don't use too much of this sauce because it will quickly overpower the other flavors of the pizza. I recommend using just enough to create a thin, translucent layer before adding other toppings.
