My Special Pizza

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


I love using mustard in pizza sauce. I tried for years to duplicate the tang of commercial pizzas, and finally hit upon mustard. It works for me! This recipe for My Special Pizza is one I make all the time. Use my Yeast Pizza Crust for a truly homemade treat.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
  • 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Thin Pizza Crust or 2 Boboli® pizza crusts
  • Pepperoni
  • Chopped green peppers, if desired
  • Canned mushrooms, drained, if desired
  • 3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cook onion in the olive oil until tender. Add tomato sauce, paste, mustard, seasonings and water. Cook, stirring frequently, over low heat until thickened and blended, about 10 minutes. If you're making the Thin Pizza Crust, prebake it for 10 minutes.

Spread sauce over the pizza crust and sprinkle toppings over. Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15-25 minutes until heated through, crust is crisp, and cheese is melted and beginning to brown.

Just delicious!, Guest Janet

My husband and kids loved, loved, loved the flavor of this pizza. I finally have a sauce better than my local pizza joint! Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
