Homemade Pizza Sauce- Table for Seven

Does your family consume as much pizza as mine does?

Whew..we eat it a bunch. Mostly homemade, but we do get take-out when cooking is the last thing in the world that is going to happen in my kitchen.

To go along with the homemade pizza, we have homemade sauce. Now, I try and make as much homemade foods/sauces as possible. But let’s face it, life sometimes gets ahead of you and picking up a jar of pizza sauce is just easier.

However, this sauce is very easy to toss together.  You can also make yourself a big batch and freeze it for later. A great way to save yourself a trip to the store and save a little money. 👍
