Easy and Tasty Pizza Sauce

pizza sauce

Every time I cook, I try to make everything from scratch. Since we decided to have a “make your own pizza” night last night, I looked for the best pizza sauce recipe I could find. It was in fact quite delicious! Pizza night is so great because you can make the dough, the sauce and chop the fresh ingredients in advance. You make small pizzas so everyone can have their own and pick what they want as toppings. We love doing that in my family :)
