Hi there friends! I just want to give you a quick recipe, since I rambled on, on Tuesday with my monthly top ten.
I usually post a recipe on Tuesday’s, but I also post my monthly top ten on the first day of the month, so you kinda got gypped (I totally had to look up the spelling for gypped) out of a recipe.
So I thought, why not take the opportunity to post a staple, yet simple recipe. This Homemade pizza sauce.I am obsessed with pizza, and like many of you out there, I have come to the conclusion, homemade is better. Its so much more flexible. You can choose to put whatever you want on it, at home, and no one will judge you… except maybe your family.
I used to use store bought pizza sauce on my homemade pizza… it just didn’t sit well with me. Why pay for something I can make at home for cheaper and it just taste better. It’s so simple to It also freezes well. I usually freeze them on portion sizes, which makes for a quick thawing.
Homemade Pizza Sauce
1 Tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Small Onion, Diced
2 Teaspoons of Minced Garlic
3 Tablespoons of Tomato Paste
1 Teaspoon of Italian Seasoning (I use Club House)
1 14ounce Can of Diced Tomatoes
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add diced onions, garlic and Italian seasoning. Cook until onions are soft and translucent.
Stir in tomato paste. Cook for 1 minute. Add diced canned tomatoes with juice. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
Pour into a blender and puree.
TIP: Yay pizza sauce. I like to store mine in ziploc snack bags and freeze them. I put about a 1/3 of a cup in each bag. They take 5 minutes to thaw in warm water, then you simply cut the corner and squeeze out onto a pizza crust.
