Cheap, super easy, and delicious pizza sauce
I made my first homemade pizzas not too long ago and came up with this for the sauce and it turned out fabulous and tasted like authentic Italian pizza! I don't know if this is the right place to put it, hopefully it is. So here's what I used:
1 small can of fire roasted tomatoes (14-15 oz can)
2 Tbsp chopped garlic
1 Tbsp olive oil
1-2 tsp Italian herbs
1 Tbsp basil
(can add pinch of salt if you'd like but I found it unecessary since the tomatoes are already salted - and I like salt)
drain most of the tomatoes' juice, then puree in blender or with immersion blender, add garlic, oil, and herbs. stir with a spoon and spread over your pizza dough followed by toppings.
authentic Italian pizza is made with fresh mozzarella (the kind packed in water), but it's great with shredded mozzarella too. shredding your own is best because the pre-shredded stuff is usually tossed in cornstarch (and it's more expensive).
this makes enough for 4 - 15 in pizzas.
