Pantry Pizza Sauce

This isn’t a big-to-do, fru-fru, fancy pizza sauce. It doesn’t have wine or fresh basil or whatever. It isn’t like our favorite homemade sauce that takes a little effort (and a lot more ingredients) to throw together. Everything that goes in it is probably already in your pantry… hence the name, pantry pizza sauce.

Pantry Pizza SauceWhat this pantry pizza sauce is is easy, fast, and tasty and perfect when you just want to throw together a quick pizza. And that’s exactly what I did.

It takes a little more time, but also try my house pizza sauce.
