2 Minute Pizza Sauce

Friday night is pizza night in our house!  I don't have a signature combination of toppings, with 6 different opinions I can't land on any one thing.  The hubs and I love goat cheese.  I have a Hawaiian lover and an olive-obsessed little princess, so that is always changing.  What doesn't change is the need for a simple sauce.
I know, you can just use pasta sauce.  My problem is with the jar half full of sauce that gets lost in the fridge.  I came up with this solution one Friday when I didn't have a jar of pasta, and since then I haven't cracked open a jar for pizza ever again.  The texture is better and it takes two minutes and  five ingredients I bet you already have on hand.

Two Minute Pizza Sauce
Ingredients:
1-6 oz. can or tetra-pak of tomato paste
1 tsp. of Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. of garlic powder
1/2 tsp. of sea salt
a pinch of sugar (you can leave this out, but it really does balance the acidity of the tomato paste)
3/4 cup of warm water

Combine all ingredients.  Stir with a fork until all is combined.  Spread on pizza.  Should be enough to cover 2 large pizzas.  You could use 1/2 and then freeze the other half.  So if it is this easy, why would you ever buy pizza sauce?

Love and Butter,

Mishelle

  3. Thank you for this recipe, it sounds awesome and I love that it only takes a couple of minutes! I make homemade sauce but I have to simmer it for a half hour, which is not convenient :) I will definitely try your recipe! Thanks for linking up at Thrifty Thursday!

  5. Homemade sauces really are so much better! They taste better and you know exactly what is going in them which I like - no random odd ingredients.

    I feel silly asking this question, but what is a tetra-pak?

    1. Tetra-paks are the boxes that tomatoes are packaged in, or like shelf-stable milk. Pomi brand is the most common tetra-pak tomato company. They are preferred because they are not lined with BPA like cans, but are harder to find and usually more expensive.
