My favorite pizza sauce
I realized the other day that my favorite pizza sauce didn’t have a post of its own. I mean, I’ve shared the recipe before, but only on other pizza recipes. And, since it’s such a favorite in this house now, I thought it deserved a nice little space all its own!
We use it all the time. If there isn’t a jar in the fridge, I’ve probably stashed it in the freezer. Just thaw it in the microwave, or take it out of the freezer the day before you want to use it.
It’s thick and rich, with a little sweetness and a little heat. It’s filled with herbs and spices, and requires no cooking! Just stir it all together. Super easy and yummy!
No need to go out to your favorite pizza place anymore and spend lots of money. Now you can make it at home!
And, it goes great on lots of different pizzas.
