Kitchen Boss - Pizza

There really is nothing better than homemade sauce.  I love making a huge pot of sauce for my family to enjoy on a Sunday and I even like to make my own sauce for pizza.  Whenever I’m in a pinch and need sauce for something I usually like to make a small amount versus my usual amount.  This amount is perfect for a few servings of pasta, a few pizzas, or even just enjoying with some fresh baked bread.  I’ll never, EVER purchase a jar of sauce.  For me it’s just not worth it flavor wise, health wise, or money wise.  I no longer purchase canned tomatoes either because of BPA.

It may be a little more pricey to purchase containers that don’t contain BPA, however I feel that it’s definitely worth it!  Do you make your own sauce?  Do you have a favorite recipe?  This recipe is so easy that I made it quickly before my sister came over to visit and just let it cook on a low fire on the stove while we caught up and chatted.  I made her some fresh pizza, we laughed, ate, and then ate some more!  I hope you try it – and if you do please let me know how you like it!

    This sounds so easy. I love tomato sauces. I make a veggie soup that uses tomato as a base rather than stock and this recipe would be very adaptable *pinned*

    That is very similar to the marinara I make. It’s such a good recipe and surprisingly authentic.

    It looks so easy to make! I never use canned tomatoes and I generally just use fresh tomatoes to make sauce for the same reasons
