Recipe: Quick Homemade Pizza Sauce


Have you ever taken a look at the ingredients & nutrition facts panel on jarred pizza/pasta sauce? The ingredients in Ragu’s “Pizza Quick Snack Sauce” include Modified Food Starch (to prevent caking) and “Natural Flavors” (whatever that means!) It’s also LOADED with sodium…a single 1/4 cup serving offers 16% of the daily limit. The jarred sauces also include added sugar (no thank you!). There’s no reason to buy it in a jar when you can make your own with minimal ingredients in 10 minutes or less. I always make my own pasta sauces, and now I’ve started making my own pizza sauce. With half the sugar and salt of the jarred stuff, this recipe still offers up tons of flavor. Enjoy!
