Pizza Sauce!


I have a recipe today! Its a pretty important one…. that’s right. Pizza sauce.

Pizza Sauce
A jar of this is just about always in my fridge. I maybe eat pizza a lot…. but hey, who doesn’t enjoy a good pizza?

Homemade Pizza Sauce:

This is a super simple recipe! Of course if you want to be super fancy you could use fresh roma tomatoes… but that takes much longer… I don’t usually have time for that. I feel this is a great (and much quicker!) alternative!

chop basil

First coarsely chop your basil. You could really even tear it if you don’t feel like chopping… and also if you don’t mind your fingers smelling like basil all day. It’s probably one of my favorite smells, but not on my fingers.

Now just go ahead and throw everything into a pot on the stove top. Turn the heat to medium and allow to simmer. (Tip: use a wooden spoon to prop a lid over the pot while its simmering. This will prevent any splattering that’s bound to occur when simmering.) Let this go on for as little as 10 minutes or as long as an hour or so. The longer it simmers the more the flavors infuse together, but if you don’t have the time don’t worry. It’s still tasty! When you are satisfied with the simmering time, transfer the sauce to a blender and blend until its a sauce-like consistency. Be sure to be careful. It will be hot!

Now all you have to do is use it on your pizza! I store the rest in a mason jar in my fridge. It will last for some time! (Though mine always gets used up rather quickly!)
