Homemade Pizza Sauce
On Friday I asked E what she wanted for dinner. Why I’m asking a two-year-old what she wants for dinner is beyond me. Ben had a late night at work, so I guess I didn’t really care. Well, sweet little E said “pizza!”
I opened the pantry only to discover that we had no pizza sauce. Well, helllllo–I could make my own, right? Well, with a little tweaking and a lot of tasting, I think this pizza sauce turned out perfectly. I don’t know why I haven’t been doing this all along.
I threw in a completely weird secret ingredient. Chia seeds. Yes, you probably think I have fallen off of my rocker. No, you do not have to put them in if you don’t want to. They are not integral to the success of this recipe, but I wanted to thow in a little extra nutrition. Why not?
This sauce is beyond easy. Throw all the ingredients in a blender, pour them in a hot pan, simmer for 30 minutes and don’t wear white while you’re stirring. And definitely don’t cook in your birthday suit.
I’d say this recipe makes about enough sauce for two pizzas. You can easily freeze half of it for use at another time. Enjoy!
Verdict: Loved this and will definitely be making it again.
Husband’s take: He dubbed this my best pizza ever. Not even kidding you! Cooking from scratch pays off. E devoured it too, but that is no surprise.
Changes I would make: None!
