This simple pizza sauce is a family favorite!
We make this pizza sauce in large batches, freeze the leftovers in pizza-sized servings and then just thaw/reheat as needed.
It’s perfect for a summer dinner-in-minutes meal, especially if you have frozen pizza dough on hand too!
- 2 cans (16 oz) tomato sauce
- 2 tsp. sugar (either white or brown)*
- 2 tsp. oregano
- 2 tsp. basil
- 1 tsp. dried minced garlic
- sea salt & pepper, to taste
- Optional: splash of olive oil
*Note: You can use 1 tsp. honey (if you don’t mind the flavor of honey sneaking through)
In a medium saucepan, combine the tomato sauce, sugar, oregano, basil and garlic. Bring to a slow simmer and warm until heated through. Carefully snitch a taste & then season with salt & pepper as needed.
Cool the sauce to room temperature, and then pour into ice cube trays to freeze.
Store in ziplock bags, or in 1/2 C portion sizes.
