How to make the pasta sauce creamier? How to thin out the pasta sauce?

  • Creamier: Add heavy cream one tablespoon at a time until deserved taste. Adjust with salt and black pepper.
  • Thinner Pasta Sauce: Heat up the sauce over medium heat, adding vegetable stock one tablespoon at a time until deserved texture. Adjust salt and black pepper to taste.

How to make it a homemade pizza sauce?

  • Add no heavy cream or vegetable stock! You want the sauce to be all natural and thick like traditional pizza sauce ;)
