We love making homemade pizza. And I’ve been so guilty in the past of using store-bought pizza sauce. But there’s really no need to when you can SO EASILY throw it together at home. Not only is it budget-friendly, it tastes so much better!

Sure, it takes a little effort to make pizza dough from scratch, but it is well worth it. And if you are going to take the time to make homemade pizza dough, PLEASE make homemade pizza sauce. To make a really good pizza you need to start with good pizza crust AND pizza sauce.

You can easily make it ahead of time and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make your pizza!
