I’d like to blog about a few good food finds first, that I’ve found for making homemade pizza. Pizza sauce is made from tomato paste and Hunt’s has their own version of No Salt added tomato paste, great for those of you who need to watch their sodium intake. I’m kind of a messy cook, and that’s why there’s some tomato paste on the side of the can. My friend was telling me how she’d like to learn how to make tomato paste from tomatoes, and that would be a great idea, I think. Anybody know how????
Another food find is Boboli pizza crust. I saw it mentioned on the blog Emily Bites and she uses the Whole Wheat kind. I went looking for that and couldn’t find it (of course) and opted for the Original Italian version instead. What a great pizza crust and I liked how thick it was.
To make pizza sauce is pretty easy. Just heat up all the ingredients in a sauce pan and stir. Can’t get any easier than that, the leftovers can be stored in an air tight container, for the next time you make pizza. I made a taco pizza with my sauce.
