I always say that it only takes one time to eat a really good pizza to know the difference and you wont ever eat a nasty pizza again!  The difference in pizza’s is that you may prefer a thick or thin base and then the topping choices are so varied! The pizza sauce is a strong contribution in what makes a great pizza. Too weak, runny or thin and you end up with a soggy pizza base and that’s not a great start.

How to store this easy pizza sauce

Simply pour it into one of a freezer bag and when you need it you can thaw it or pop straight into a pot on the stove.

Here’s the thing with freezing, once you use those bags and you’ve put too much in there, you are then forced to defrost the whole lot and that can be a pain! So you can also divide it into separate smaller bags and it becomes a lot more convenient. Ice trays if that’s a preference.
