{Garden to Plate Series}Homemade Pizza Sauce

pizza_sauce I don’t remember the last time I bought tomatoes at the super market.. Before you go  WHAT?, let me tell you why. We have been blessed with bounty of tomatoes this year from our backyard garden. My refrigerator is flooded with tomatoes and I’m loving it. I pureed most of it and dumped in the freezer and rest made its way to sauceland. Recently I made this yummy pizza sauce which was oh so good and the aroma  was intoxicating. I almost finished quarter of it in the name of taste-testing. homemade_pizzasauce  

Here’s how I made it.

You’ll need:

  1. Tomato puree-  2 cups  note– you can use canned tomatoes/ tomato ketchup
  2. Italian seasoning- 2 tsp or to taste
  3. salt & pepper- to taste
Directions
  1. In a saucepan, pour the tomato puree and the remaining ingredients; Mix well.
  2. Stir often and wait for it to boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to low ; cover and let it simmer for 45 mins to 1 hour.
  4. Stir occasionally and let it cool.
  5. Use it to spread over pizza dough or freeze it in a mason jar.
