Veggie Pizza Sauce

It’s pizza night! I had been experimenting with putting all different kinds of vegetables into our pizza sauce. Though, after several months of doing so, I think the children missed the basic pizza sauce. Tonight I tried to make a minimal veggie sauce. I picked some tomatoes, peppers, and basil from the garden and prepared them for the sauce.

I use the Blendtec to make the sauce; each ingredient listed I just throw in there and then puree it on the Sauce/Dips setting.

Veggie Pizza Sauce

(this is enough sauce for about 2 large pizzas)
5-7 small/medium sized roma tomatoes
1/2 onion
3-5 garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 teaspoons real salt
2 tablespoons molasses or honey
3/4 bell pepper
3-4 handfuls of fresh basil
Blend well. Pour into a saucepan, and let simmer for about 20 minutes or longer for reduction. Add 1 4oz jar of organic tomato paste. Stir well. Add pepper or salt to taste.
Pour onto fresh homemade pizza crusts, top with good cheeses, – we like cheddar, asiago, colby and a homemade farmer’s cheese. .Add your favorite toppings, bake for about 10-15 minutes. Enjoy with a green salad.
