Quick Pizza Sauce

One of the easiest ways to add unique flavors to your meals is to make your own sauces and one of the easiest ones is this Quick Pizza Sauce. We rarely purchase jarred pizza sauce opting instead for some homemade sauce instead.

We haven’t had a place to put in a garden the past couple of years so we’ve resorted to using canned tomato paste for this recipe but it can easily be adapted for fresh tomatoes from the store or your home garden.
