  • Tomato Paste: I mix canned tomato paste with water and olive oil to make a more oil-based pizza sauce. 
  • Rosemary: This recipe would be absolutely delicious with fresh rosemary, though dried rosemary works just as well. 
  • Sage: I use rubbed sage, however you can use whatever form of sage you have on hand (even fresh)
  • Marjoram: Marjoram and oregano are vaguely similar to one another in flavor, though its profile is a bit milder.
  • If you don’t have tomato paste, you can use canned tomato sauce in a pinch. 
  • Feel free to use fresh herbs if you have them on hand/can find them! Chop them up very finely to stir them into the sauce.
