Once upon a time, I used to make pizza. Thin crust, spicy oil, zesty pizza sauce, loads of mozzarella cheese and heaps of pepperoni. I loved my crust. It was thin and crispy yet enough dough to support everything.
I have a great recipe that I use for pizza dough that I use from one of Carol Fenster's cookbook. One time I forgot which recipe I used and ended up using Annalise Robert's recipe which was also pretty good.
One thing hasn't changed though. The pizza sauce.
I've never really been a fan of the ones you can buy in the store and they can't really be stored properly for long periods after they have been opened.
For tonight's sauce, I kept the sauce really simple. I could have added many more flavours but I was going for a certain style. Classic pizza shop with properly positioned pepperoni!
Easy Pizza Sauce
- 1 6 oz can tomato paste
- 1 6 oz can water
- 1 tsp agave (can use honey or sugar if you like)
- 1 TBSP each dried basil and parsley
- Freshly ground pepper and salt
On other occasions, I will add rosemary, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, and/or red chile pepper flakes. Whatever you like, add. It's just the simplest, easiest sauce recipe you'll find!

I used to buy this cheese and it didn't have the GF symbol on it like over 800 Wegman's products. The ingredients list looked fine but there was no disclosure on the package. I was happy to see the GF Wegman's mark on the packages I bought today.
|Oven - 450F for about 10-15 minutes until nicely browned, bubbly and crispy.|
