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.

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time1 min
 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)
1

Gather your ingredients as well as a small mixing bowl.

2

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

3

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

4

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.

  1. . I thought it was crazy to substitute tomato sauce for ketchup, almost an insult. But now I see it’s a thing among some guys.

    1. Hey Yoshi. As I mention in the article, ketchup is definitely not my go-to choice for tomato sauce, but it can work in a pinch and really isn’t as outlandish as it may appear. Ketchup is really just a super sweet tomato paste, so if that’s what you’re into go for it!
