There's a difference!!

OK, I know it's been asked before, but I REALLY want to know...what is the difference between spaghetti & pizza sauce?

Yes, they're both tomato based sauces, with similar seasonings. I know one is thicker. Food snobs usual answers on forums are condescending & useless as far as getting the answer.

So seriously...what's the difference between the sauce for


  And THIS:

Cause if I hear one more person say it's the same...tell me, when you're eating THIS:

And you try it at home with canned spaghetti sauce...it's gross, isn't it? It's more than just being thinner. There's a seasoning difference. No debate on the difference between uncooked & pre-cooked sauces needed, I get it. I just want to know why I can buy a can of spaghetti sauce for $1 & have to pay the same amount, if not more, for a jar HALF THE SIZE, of pizza sauce...if it's the same?


  1. I ASKED THE WRONG QUESTION! *sigh* Should have asked what is the difference in seasonings!!! HERE'S what I found:

    In general, Italian seasonings would usually be oregano, thyme and basil, and perhaps also include rosemary and/or sage.

    Seasonings for pizza would usually have most of those ingredients too, but also add other ingredients suck as salt, sugar, garlic, red and green bell pepper, lemon peel, or fennel

  2. showing us, that if we get into canning, one of the easier first steps would be to start with making our own sauces- as high-acidity foods (tomato-based) are the easiest to safely can and store when you are just learning.
