Homemade Pizza Sauce-no need to buy it when it’s so easy to make your own.
We’ve fallen in love with homemade pizza around here. It’s just so easy once you get into making it yourself. And faster too.
We could all load up the truck and head out to a pizza place and order a pizza, wait for them to cook it, finally bring it to the table, enjoy the pizza because it is fresh out of the oven. And pay way to much for it.
Yes, we have a few really good pizza places around here. But honestly, I hate trying to get everyone ready to go, etc. I like to eat at home.
The other choice is to go for delivery. We have one place that delivers to our home. They’re ok. It’s one of those national chains. But again, cost, time and oh, the pizza’s only luke warm, nope, I’ll take my homemade. And so will everyone else in the house.
I’ve been experimenting with doughs and I finally found one that is easy, I’d even say fail proof, and tastes just like the best pizzeria you can find. So I had to find a sauce. There are a few jars sauces out there we like but again, they can be a little pricey. And I like to know what’s going into my food.
I found this sauce on pinterest. I think it’s probably one of the most pinned sauces on there. And the one’s that weren’t from this site, used this recipe to make theirs. You know what? Everyone of those pinners is right. This sauce is awesome! And you won’t believe how fast and easy it is to make.
