Almost From Scratch Marinara

Cut hours off of the process of making homemade tomato sauce by starting with a jarred sauce or canned tomato sauce.  The secret is the addition of fresh herbs, onions, and garlic. 

The end result is so good everyone will think you spend hours in front of the stove. 


  • 32 ounces Tomato sauce
  • 4 ounces Tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons Extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 medium White onion (chopped)

  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Thyme 
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Oregano
  • ½ cup Fresh basil (chopped)
  • Louisiana Love Seasoning Blends to taste


Place a medium size, heavy pot over medium-high heat.

Add all ingredients and stir well. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 25-30 minutes, stirring frequently.

Timing is everything, and that’s especially true in this dish. Using a quality meat thermometer is essential to avoid overcooking.

The steak is lightly oiled and seasoned well on both sides, then grilled over a very hot fire for 3-4 minutes or until the temperature on the bottom half of the steak reaches 120°.

Remove and start to build the pizza on the cooked of the steak. Remember, less is more!

Close grill and vents to reduce heat to 375°.

Carefully return pizza to grill and cook for 8-10 minutes or until a temperature of 130° is reached in the thickest part of the steak.

Pro Tip: Avoid opening the lid frequently.  This will keep the heat inside to cooking chamber.

Allow to rest for 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
