Isn't homemade pizza the best?!!! It's definitely one of my kid's favorite meals. I'd much rather make it at home than have it delivered. It's fun to get creative with toppings and let everyone come up with their own customized version.
I've been making this simple homemade pizza sauce for a while, It's so much more flavorful than the store-bought stuff and makes the best pizza! This recipe makes enough sauce for 3-4 pizzas. Store any remaining sauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
