We are a pizza loving household (especially when Cameron is around!). We had him over the weekend and I decided to make homemade pizza for dinner. I made homemade pizza dough and then this pizza sauce. At first, Cameron didn't want to try the pizza because it was homemade but Mr. Picky did! and he liked it!
This pizza sauce is seriously as easy as opening up a jar of pizza sauce but has much more flavor! It's nice to have a little bit more kick on the same old boring pizza sometimes!
