Easy Pizza Sauce ( and Easy Pizza for Kids)

I like to eat pizza, but I try to be careful that we only do take out once or twice a month.  Sometimes I make my own crust, and sometimes I make French bread pizza.  Recently I had French bread on my grocery list for pizza making purposes when I realized I had leftover sandwich rolls in the cupboard.

I cut each roll in half, put on some of my homemade pizza sauce (from the freezer), and had our 3 year old help with sprinkling the cheese.  It was great to not waste the rolls, and still have pizza for dinner!

My pizza sauce is really simple to make.  I'm just not a fan of store bought pizza sauce, and this is really easy to make.   I got it from Amy's WFD Blog!  (WFD=What's For Dinner) though I'm not sure where the original post is.

Amy's Yummy Pizza Sauce
2 cans tomato paste (6 oz each)
2 cups water
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon Italian dried seasonings
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
Bring the mixture up to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Allow mixture to cool before pouring on top of the pizza.

I usually freeze my extra and pull it out when I am almost ready to use it.  I do the same with my pasta sauce.  (I have been making pizza sauce much longer than my pasta sauce.  I didn't know I could make homemade sauces without them being chunky, but they are not chunky!  Both are totally worth it!)

I'm with you on not using store bought sauce, it never tastes as good, same with their spaghetti sauce in general.

We like to do English Muffin pizza once in awhile. I'm excited to try your sauce recipe-thanks!

This looks so tasty...does it make enough for one large pizza? I'm going to try it out!

I go light on pizza sauce, but this definitely makes more than for just one large pizza, Jenna. For me, it's more like 4-5 medium pizzas.
