Good for you ingredients

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are great sources of vitamins C, A and K.  They also contain lycopene which is an anti-carcinogenic that studies have shown to help in preventing cancer.  

Why make your own pizza sauce? 

Making your own pizza sauce at home is quick and easy with just a few ingredients and cuts back on sodium and possible inflammatory oils, like soybean oil, that some brands use to preserve their sauce for a longer shelf life. 

How to store leftovers

  • To Store:  Store any leftover sauce in a glass storage container.  Sauce will last up to 2 weeks.  
  • To Freeze: Sauce can be frozen in a well sealed freezer bag or I suggest using these super handy Souper Cube containers.  Ice cube trays will work too, you will just have smaller portions.
  • To Reheat: from fresh, use as is on another pizza or try it as a dip to these delicious Zucchini Pizza Rolls!  From frozen, place Souper Cube or ice cubes in a pan to warm. Drain off any excess liquid.
