One thing I love about Campari tomatoes is that you can get them any time of the year. They are sweet are very flavorful tomatoes. Plus, they can be used for so many recipes, including this 10-minute Homemade Marinara Sauce!  

Forget about buying jars of marinara sauce when you can make it fresh from scratch right at home! 

Easy Marinara Sauce to make at home

One of the key components of this homemade marinara is the spices.  I used Spiceology’s Salt-Free Pizza Pie Blend, and it blew me away! Adding this seasoning made this sauce a 100!! So, so good!

I only used 1 tsp, and it added so much flavor! With it being salt-free, I can control the salt to our liking, which is important for us as sometimes too much salt is overpowering and makes us feel not so great. That’s one reason why I love Spiceology’s spice blends. They have a whole variety of salt-free blends, so you can control how much salt to put in your recipes.  Also, this is not an ad. I am just a big fan!

To make this homemade marinara, you will need the following 5 ingredients:

  • Campari Tomatoes – We get our tomatoes from Costco! They are a great price you can’t beat. We also have bought Campari tomatoes from Whole Foods too but found Costco’s to be fresher.
  • Spiceology’s Salt-Free Pizza Pie Blend 
  • Olive Oil – Adds additional flavor, so don’t skip out! 
  • Salt – Add to taste, per your liking. We used a healthy pinch.
  • Cane Sugar – Totally optional, but it adds a nice sweet flavor to the sauce. We prefer sweeter marinara.

We hope you all love this easy, 10-minute homemade marinara sauce! It definitely comes in hand when you need red marinara sauce in a snap for those homemade pizza nights.  This sauce goes great with our Margherita Pizza recipe! Enjoy!

10-Minute Homemade Marinara

  • Author: Tracey Gene
  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5-7 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1/2 cup 1x


Forget about buying jars of marinara sauce when you can make it fresh from scratch right at home! This recipe is crazy easy and absolutely delicious! Requires 5 ingredients and made in 10 minutes! 


  1. 5 Campari tomatoes, cut into wedges
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 1 teaspoon Spiceology’s Salt-Free Pizza Pie Blend
  4. Pinch of salt (add more to taste)
  5. 1/4 teaspoon cane sugar (optional – for a sweeter marinara)


  1. Add all ingredients to a saucepan and turn the burner on to medium-high heat. 
  2. Bring sauce to a simmer, stirring often for about 5-7 minutes. The tomatoes will release their juices, and their skins will soften. Taste and add more salt, if needed. 
  3. Remove from heat and transfer sauce to a glass container. Use for Pizza, dipping, or spaghetti. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
