Pizza with Homemade Sauce

This recipe is great on a night when I don't have a lot of time to cook a meal, but want to provide my family with something that I feel is a wee bit better than a frozen pizza (Notice the difference between the barbecue chicken plate and the pizza plate). The homemade sauce gives it a great flavor as well. This week the Mom and Dad pizza was pepperoni and red onions and the kids went for the usual pepperoni. 

Ingredients for Sauce

1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp pepper
dash of Italian seasoning

Directions for sauce

Stir all ingredients together until mixed well. I honestly don't measure exact and sometimes sprinkle in a little more or less of each ingredient. This makes enough for at least three pizzas, so I am able to freeze some to have on hand. 

Pizza Ingredients

1 package Aldi pizza crust (2 crusts)
1 block mozzarella cheese
Pepperoni, red onion, black olives, pineapple, ham, etc. 
Served with baby carrots and canned peaches. 


1. Spread the sauce on the crust. 
2. Add toppings. 
3. Bake at 425-450 for about 8-10 minutes.  You can broil for the last minute to get the extra crispy golden brown if you choose. My oven is a convection and I set it at 450 and it's perfect without broiling.
