It’s literally the easiest sauce to make in the world. No lie. Canned tomatoes, tomato paste, herbs (dried or fresh), salt and pepper and some balsamic. (Not pictured? A pinch of sugar). And you can work with whatever tomatoes you’ve got on had. The original recipe calls for crushed, but if you have diced or whole, no big deal; just drain about half the liquid then blend the sauce.
Now, toppings to go on top of the sauce is a whole other ball game. My husband is a meat man; pepperoni, sausage, the more the better. Me? I’m all about the veggies and fancy cheese, goat cheese and corn is my latest favorite. A little arugula is also right up my alley. Our only compromise is Hawaiian pizza. Canadian bacon and pineapple is our happy place for sharing. But we both agree on this sauce.
