Pantry Pizza Sauce

Pantry Pizza Sauce (002)

Last summer, I took on a canning project unlike any other I’ve attempted, and I successfully preserved eight months’ worth of my favourite pizza sauce recipe. The final jar was opened a few days ago when I prepared a few pies for our weekly pizza night, and I’m sad to know I have to wait another four months to get my hands on some fresh tomatoes.

In the meantime, I’m making this pantry pizza sauce. I can’t stock my cupboards with jars of it, but one batch makes enough sauce for eight to ten pizzas, so I tuck half of it in the fridge for up to three weeks and the rest is stored in the freezer for another month or until it runs out.

The recipe makes use of items you’re certain to have on hand in your pantry, and can be adjusted – dried basil in place oregano, more salt, less sugar – to suit your family’s taste.

Making homemade pizza sauce is nearly as easy as making the dough, and I encourage you to give it a try. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
