Homemade Freezer-Ready Pizza Sauce
I originally found this recipe at Miserly Moms years ago, before frugal was the new black, and used it often. I recently rediscovered it and pulled it back out of the cookbook as another effort to reduce expenses at home.
If this sauce is made and ready, I will be more likely to make pizza at home rather than order out and I do not have to run to the grocery store when I choose to make one. In addition to convenience, this homemade sauce costs less than half of the jarred sauce.
Some of the ingredients lend well to changing so you can cater to your family's taste, just as I changed it a bit from the original.
Homemade Pizza Sauce
1 large can Tomato Puree (29 oz.)
1 small can Tomato Sauce (8 oz.)
approximately 1/4 cup olive oil (original recipe called for 1/2 cup salad oil but I thought that was too much)
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon oregano
1 Tablespoon parsley flakes
Mix all of the ingredients together and divide into 4 freezer bags. There's no need to cook this and it freezes very well.
The total cost of 4 portions of pizza sauce is roughly $1.50 or .38 a pizza.

try this one sometime.. one small can tomato sauce, one small can italian style tomato paste. (it's got all the seasoning in it), then sprinkle in your parmesan. Covers about 4 pizzas. Great stuff :)
I've been looking for a good pizza sauce recipe. I always buy it, but I don't know why. I'll try this. Thanks!
