Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves: 8

Prep: 30-40 minutes

Yield: about 15 ounces sauce; enough for 1-3 pizzas depending on size


  • 2 tablespoons garlic infused olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon  onion or other infused olive oil (for tips on shopping for these oils, see my low-FODMAP recipe swap blog)
  •  ¼ cup (32 g) celery, chopped
    • FODMAP fact: While celery is often perceived as high-FODMAP, 10g is a safe portion size
  • ½ cup carrot minced or finely chopped
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce (make sure no added spices)
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste (no added onion, garlic)
  • Seasonings:
    • 1 teaspoon dried or fresh basil, chopped
    • 1 teaspoon dried or fresh oregano
    • Can also use 2 teaspoons low-FODMAP Happy Spices Italian Seasoning (so good!)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 small  bay leaf


  • In a large skillet, warm oils. Add the celery and carrot and saute until soft and transparent
  • Add fresh basil and oregano or low-FODMAP Happy Spices Italian Seasoning and heat until fragrances released
  • Add tomato sauce and tomato paste and stir until smooth
  • Add remaining salt, pepper, sugar, bay leaf and bring to slow simmer
  • Simmer for 24-30 minutes on low
  • Remove the bay leaf and spread the sauce on your prepared low-FODMAP Pizza Crust or place in jar in refrigerator until use (can be kept for up to 1 month)
