Homemade Pizza Sauce
If you could choose one meal to eat repeatedly – what would it be?
Pizza would get the sweeping vote at our house. It’s not uncommon for us to have pizza once a week – usually on a family night when we’re watching a movie or playing board games. Or on a Sunday afternoon when the football game is on. And sometimes on a night I just didn’t feel like doing much in the kitchen. Or… well, you get the point. We don’t really need a reason to have pizza. 🙂
So many uses with one sauce
In the old days (a.k.a. before gluten allergies) we made a dry-yeast crust with whole wheat flour. After we learned about Travis’s allergy to gluten we changed it to Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Pizza Crust. Then, when candida became a known player in our health, we exchanged the gluten-free crust for our current favorite: One-Ingredient Sourdough Pizza Crust.
But no matter which crust we’ve used, we always use the same homemade pizza sauce. This is a family favorite, and super easy to throw together.
No matter what kind of pizza crust we use, we've always used our favorite homemade pizza sauce. This one is simple and super easy to throw together.
