This healthy Pizza Sauce is a huge hit, it is easy to prepare and incredibly delicious. My family loves pizza and we always have on hand, whether it is homemade or storebought gluten-free vegan pizzas.
My hubby bought Schar’s Pizza Crust and so I decided to make some pizza sauce for it. I decided to whip up this incredibly tasty pizza sauce and let me tell you, it tasted better than any store brought pizza sauce,
The good thing is this pizza is made from scratch with ingredients readily stocked in most pantries. This simple pizza sauce is packed with flavor. Around the holidays I also love to make my Mediterranean Pumpkin Pizza and my Jamaican Ackee Pizza.
