Pizza Sauce

The other week, I offered to watch my friend’s 9-year old son for the evening so that she could have a relaxing night off from motherhood. Instead of taking him out for dinner, I decided to have a pizza night at home! And not delivery pizza (cue the DiGiorno jokes)– I decided to make pizzas at home as a fun and creative activity. Needless to say, it was a hit!

We topped our pizzas with green peppers, mozzarella and pepperoni. But what really stood out was the pizza sauce. Just thinking about it makes me drool. Yes, it was that good! So good, in fact, that I just had to share it with all of you on this blog post.

I used oregano and fresh garlic and threw in paprika at the last minute to add a delicious flavor of pepper and some mild heat. I added a generous serving of sugar, which is needed to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes.

This pizza sauce recipe is so simple to make, takes 2 quick minutes to whip up and yields about 2 cups of sauce.
