And after doing a lot of searching to find a pizza sauce recipe that is was just right, I realized I couldn't find one. So, I decided to make my own using a number of the ideas I had come across.
This recipe is quick and easy to make and is so yummy! I generally make the whole batch (or double), then freeze in 2/3 cup portions (2/3 cup sauce / pizza). Our favourite toppings on this pizza is ground beef, red onions, green peppers, and marble cheese. After trying this recipe, I'm pretty sure you'll never go back to buying the processed stuff in the stores. This is way healthier and way tastier.
