Chef Boyardee’s Pizza Sauce Ingredients

Making this recipe is as easy as mixing a few ingredients. And, you need not to go for any expensive cooking elements. Let’s figure out first what you’ll require to 

  • Ripe Tomatoes (6)

Take 6 pieces of ripped tomatoes. Make sure the tomatoes aren’t overly ripped. Applying the overly ripped tomatoes will distaste your recipe. Ripe but in good condition. 

  • Olive Oil (2 Tbsp)

For an added aroma, olive oil comes into consideration. You can substitute it with vegetable oil or regular cooking oil. 

  • Garlic Paste (2 Tsp)

Take two cloves of garlic and make a paste. You also can use garlic powder. Garlic is one of the top ingredients for flavor influencing in your pizza sauce recipe. So, don’t skip it.

  • Onion (½)

If the onion is large take ½ of this and chop it into small pieces. However, in the case of a medium-sized onion, you should take a whole onion. 

  • Sugar (1 Tsp)

For a sweet flavor, you either can add sugar or honey. We prefer adding sugar as per the recipe idea of Chef Boyardee’s. So, take 1 tsp of sugar. Don’t add much or your sauce recipe will become excessively sweet and it will lose its taste. 

  • Basil (⅓ Cup)

If you want to get a natural flavor add herbs of any kind. In this case, the Chef Boyardee prefers to add basil herb. So, take ⅓ cup of basil and chop them into small pieces. 

  • Chili Powder & Chili Flakes (1 Tsp & ½ Tsp)

The pizza sauce comes with a balance of sweet hot, and salty flavors. So, you need to take 1 tsp of red chili powder. Depending on your heat preference, the amount of chili powder can be more. 

Furthermore, for an added flavor, add ½ tsp of chili flakes. But it’s optional. You either can add or skip. However, chili flakes work as a great flavor influencer for pizza sauce recipes. 

  • Oregano (¾ Tsp)

You should apply the oregano only to spread a nice aroma. So, adding more will distaste your sauce recipe. In this case, go for only ¾ tsp of whole oregano. 

  • Salt (2 Tsp)

To get a good balance between sweetness and heat, add 2 tsp of white salt. Without salt, your sauce recipe won’t be tasty and won’t get a good texture as well. So, salt is one of the key ingredients for this recipe. 

  • Tomato Sauce & Butter (1 Tsp Each)

To get a good texture of your pizza sauce, you are required to add butter and tomato sauce. The tomato sauce will bring a nice color and butter will give a good creamy flavor. So, take 1 tsp of tomato sauce and 1 tsp of butter. 

How to Make Chef Boyardee’s Pizza Sauce

Making pizza sauce is not different from other sauce recipes. The making procedure is almost similar. If you have tried other sauce recipes already, the pizza sauce recipe will seem easier. 

However, don’t worry if it’s your first time trying a pizza sauce at home. We’ll share the easiest way so it can be trouble-free for you. Let’s check it out-

Step-1

Take the tomatoes and on the top of each tomato, cut X shape as same as shown in the picture below. It will allow the tomato to be boiled properly. Also, you can peel the tomatoes easily while boiled. 

Step-2

When you finished cutting the tomatoes into an X shape, put them in a pan with 3 cups of water. Turn on the heat to high and let the tomatoes boil for 3 minutes.

Step-3

Turn the heat off your stove and remove all 6 tomatoes from the pan if they have boiled properly. Now, peel them.

Step-4

When finished peeling the tomato skin, take 3 of them and blend smoothly. Keep them aside for later use. Now put a pan on the stove and keep the heat medium-high. Put olive oil and give it a minute to be hot. Now put garlic and onion. 

Saute them and let the onion and garlic become golden brown. Keep stirring continuously so the onion and garlic won’t burn. 

Step-5

This time, you need to chop one tomato from the remaining boiled tomatoes. After chopping the tomato, remove the seeds. 

Step-6

This time, add the chopped tomato with sauteed onion and garlic and keep stirring to mix well. Saute them for 5 minutes. 

Step-7

Now add sugar, basil, and tomato paste (you made with 3 boiled tomatoes) to the mixture. And stir to mix well. Cover the pan with its lid and simmer for 5 minutes. 

Step-8

When the mixture gets thickened, add butter and tomato sauce. Keep stirring to mix them properly. 

Step-9

Let the mixture even saute for 2 minutes at medium-low heat. Now your pizza sauce is ready.

How Long is Pizza Sauce Good For

Unopened Jar

If the jar is store-bought and it’s unopened, you can store and refrigerate the sauce until the expiration date. 

Opened Jar

If your jar is store-bought and opened, you cannot expect it to store until the expiration date. In the case of an opened jar, you can refrigerate it for a maximum of 2 weeks. The pizza sauce recipe won’t last more than 2 weeks once the lid is flipped up. 

Homemade Sauce

Homemade sauce and the opened jar sauce storability are almost the same. If you want to store your homemade pizza sauce, you can store it for up to 3 weeks maximum.
