Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe

Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe

For years, I had trouble finding a pizza my family likes. So I started making my own. The evening I served it to company and they asked for my recipe. I thought, "I finally got it right!" When I prepare my sauce, I usually fix enough for three to four pizzas and freeze it. Feel free to spice up my sauce to suit your own family's tastes. —Cheryl Kravik, Spanaway, Washington
