Pizza Sauce

Posted on: May 2, 2011

This sauce was inspired by the delicious meat sauce they have at a local pizzaria.

1/4 pound ground beef
15 oz can tomato sauce, no salt added
6 oz can tomato paste, no salt added
1 Tablespoon ground oregano
1 Tablespoon ground basil
1 1/2 teaspoons dried minced garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground paprika
pinch of sugar
pinch of salt (omit if using regular tomato paste and sauce)

Cook the beef in a skillet, breaking into small chunks. Drain off fat and set aside to cool. (Sometimes I pulse it in the food processor to break it up.)

In a bowl, mix together the tomato sauce and tomato paste until smooth. Mix in the spices. Fold in the beef.

Freeze extra sauce in zip top baggies. Once defrosted, you can snip of the bottom end to add the sauce to your pizza.
