Does your family consume as much pizza as mine does? Whew..we eat it alot. Mostly homemade, but, we do get take-out when cooking is the last thing in the world that is going to happen in my kitchen. That and our next door neighbor owns the local pizza place and will give us a bit of deal.
Get a deal and support local business? That's a win/win situation, right?
To go along with the homemade pizza, we have homemade sauce. Now, I try and make as much homemade foods/sauces as possible, but, let's face it, life sometimes gets ahead of you and picking up a jar of pizza sauce is just easier.
However, this sauce is very easy to toss together. You can also make yourself a big batch and freeze it for later.
A great way to save yourself a trip to the store.
