Homemade Pizza Sauce

I will never buy jarred pizza sauce again.

Why? When this is so simple?

You all know my LOVE for all things pizza. I'm not picky - thin crust, Chicago style, whatever toppings I receive, I eat. I even loved those dreaded, full of crap, frozen pizza rolls in college. I know...

Last night was pizza night at our house. About mid-afternoon I realized I didn't have any sauce...um, need that right? So, when I made my trip downtown (and by downtown I mean, 3 blocks from my house, to a one-street downtown) I stopped at the grocery store.

My eyes hit a can of all-natural tomato sauce (.47 cents!) and I thought, that is all I really need right? And then just add some spices? So, that is what I bought. I don't remember the last time I went into the store with one thing in mind, and actually only came out carrying that one thing.

For me, that is a victory.

Homemade Pizza Sauce
1 16 oz. can Hunt's All Natural tomato sauce
1/4 c. shaved parmesan
1/2 t. basil
1 t. parsley
1/2 t. garlic salt


Mix all ingredients together and spread on pizza crust. Or, do like me and mix up ahead of time and store in the fridge until needed. I'm thinking, the longer it sits the better the flavor?

This pizza was good - Canadian bacon, mushrooms and cheese. Heavenly. But, I really don't make a bad pizza folks. Just sayin'.

Today is beautiful here, a little breezy, but a high in the lower 80's! Hooray! I'm sure little man and I will get a long walk in, and I need to head to the library again to work on my secret project...any idea what that could be? It's a project that may never take off, but I'm plugging away anyway.

  8. haha I just always use leftover sauce from spaghetti or lasagna that I've made for a pizza night! When we have too much that's when I plan one! :P

    Hmmm my guess is that your project is writing a book!

  9. We used to buy Ragu... Then we switched to Bertolli pasta sauce. Now to me Ragu tastes so gross! I'm scared if I make my own homemade sauce I'll never go back to jarred haha! I think it's a good idea to let it sit a bit. You could even freeze it without the parm and add the parm when you are ready to use it :)
