Tomato Pizza Sauce

If you plan to make pizza at home I highly recommend using homemade pizza sauce, it can make a big difference and your pizza will definitely tastes better.

This tomato pizza sauce is very flavorful due to all the seasonings used and  takes no more than 15 minutes to prepare. Once you will get used with homemade tomato sauce  you will never buy tomato sauce again. Even though this sauce can be frozen for later use It is so easy that you almost don’t need to make it in advance.

This sauce can be used on pizza but not only, it goes well with pasta or simply as a dipping sauce for various dishes.

    Looks to be a simple, quick, flavorful sauce..
    I’ve been on a pizza kick lately (yummy linguisa and Italian sausage) and have been, lazily, using plain tomato sauce..
    This may be just the sauce I need..
    Thank you… :O)
