Hope everyone is enjoying their *cough* Saturday. I love *cough* Saturdays. I mean don’t you just love *cough* weekends.
I find them so relaxing. Luckily I was all prepared and had this post ready for *cough* Saturday. I mean I am nothing if not *cough* organized.
Okay, okay so it isn’t officially Saturday but I’ll make it up for it with this yummy sauce. I hope I’m forgiven.
Okay so confession time. I usually buy my pizza sauce. Not always but often. I suppose I just figure all the other work I put in making the dough, cutting up all the ingredients, shredding oodles of cheese should be enough.
Every now and then I cave and make it from scratch. I like mine super sweet though so feel free to adjust the sugar. I won’t be offended.
I mean after all it is *cough* Saturday so I’m all chill and stuff.
We’re calling this one “Sweetums Pizza Sauce” around our household!
My sister will be laughing now as that’s one of her nicknames for me! The sweetums part, not pizza sauce because that would be weird!
Tips for Making Homemade Pizza Sauce:
- Use good quality tomatoes!
- Don't skimp on tomato paste. Buy the good stuff!
- Use fresh herbs if possible. It's not where I live during winter months!
- If using dried herbs be sure to rub them between your fingers before adding them to the sauce. It releases oils and makes them more fragrant.
- Start with smaller amounts of herbs and spices. Taste as you go so you can adjust the spice to your own liking!
- Freeze what you don't use immediately. This sauce freezes beautifully!
