Our family has committed to never ordering a pizza again. In fact, we want to make as much of our pizza as possible. So, today, we tried to make our own pizza sauce! It was fabulous. Way cheaper than buying a jar and it mixes up in a snap. It may be even faster than trying to open one of those stubborn jars. So here you go:
1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 1/2 tbsp italian seasoning
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp paprika
1 tablespoon garlic (we used the kind you get in a big jar from Sam's club. It helps to have a lot of the juice with this recipe).
Mix it all together. We used an immersion blender to make sure we got the paste blended in well. But you could do it with some patience and a spoon as well.
Yield is enough sauce for 4 pizzas. Its also way cheaper than a jar of sauce. From my calculations, this recipe costs less than $1.50 and a can of good sauce costs around $2.50. And you can really only get two pizzas out of a jar of sauce. So, instead of spending $1.25 per pizza for sauce, you're only spending about 36 cents.
