Pizza Sauce

Friday nights are pizza night around here. We love Fridays! We usually have homemade pizza but occassionaly do throw in a frozen pizza because those still have a place. :) There is, however, just something so wonderful about a homemade pizza complete with homemade dough and sauce.
This was the first and last pizza sauce I attempted. Sure, it wasn't perfect the first time but it only took a few little tweaks until I had this. It is a mildly sweet sauce but not overpowering. Though it does have quite a few ingredients it does not take long to put it together. I usually try to make it in the morning and then keep it in the fridge. I attempt to remember to stir it a couple of times throughout the day but even when I forget the sauce still tastes great!

  1. A lot of times we just do ranch dressing as the sauce on our pizzas, but this sounds really good too. I will have to try it!

  2. Ohhh I like the ranch idea. What toppings do you put with that?

  3. Mushrooms, green peppers, olives, chicken. One time we did chicken, mushrooms, and leftover broccoli, and that was pretty good too.
