Who doesn’t love pizza? We eat pizza at least once a week and now that most grocery stores sell fresh pizza dough it’s faster and (almost) as easy to make it yourself instead of ordering delivery.
And while making your own pizza sauce instead of using canned might take a little more effort on the front end, the taste is so worth it. Plus unless you’re making pizza for a crowd it makes enough to freeze part of it for the next time that pizza craving hits.
I certainly am not opposed to using quality canned tomatoes to make pizza sauce and I do that quite a bit. But when I have an abundance of fresh tomatoes I love to roast them for my pizza sauce. The beauty of roasting tomatoes is that it makes even bland supermarket tomatoes taste amazing. And it’s so easy. Simply toss halved tomatoes and coarsely chopped onion with some garlic cloves and a little olive oil. Sprinkle it with some kosher salt and some fresh herb sprigs if you’ve got them and throw it in the oven at 450 degrees for about 30 minutes.
Now all you’ve got to do is throw the roasted goodness into a blender and you’ve got pizza sauce!
