Pizza Sauce

Pizza!! So classic, so yummy, so perfect. As convenient as it is to order pizza, sometimes you just gotta make your own for the fun of it! I love my tomato products so of course I have to make my own sauce! This I found out, is really easy and delicious!

I had a tendency to over-stuff my pizzas with veggies. I remember getting discouraged that my pizzas were soggy in the center and never that nice crisp crust. The solution?? Slice the veggies thinner! That way, you can still pile the veggies on, but the end result wont be soggy!

I really enjoy the texture of flatbread pizzas. It doesnt hurt that they are the handy dandy size of a personal pizza! And they so happen to fit into my lunchboxes quite well when cut in half. Wins all around!
