Pizza Sauce

Don't let the extensive ingredients list intimidate you. This is a recipe we use all the time at my house, and it is well worth it! Please take a moment to visit the original and give it a 5 star rating!

1 (6oz) can of tomato paste
6 oz warm water (just fill your empty tomato paste can)
3 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
3 or 4 cloves minced garlic
1 Tbsp honey
3/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp marjoram
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
salt to taste

First place your tomato paste into a medium sized bowl, preferably one with a lid. Fill the empty can with warm water and add it to the tomato paste.

Measure out and add your Parmesan cheese and honey. If you have a plunger measuring cup, it really comes in handy for measuring out the honey!

Next, add in all the herbs and spices. I know there's a lot, but it will be worth it!

Whisk the ingredients together, cover and let it sit for 30 minutes. Use it for traditional pizza, pita pizza, biscuit pizza, tortilla pizza, English muffin pizza, whatever kind of pizza you have the stuff to make! Just be sure to use up all your sauce within a few days of making it, as it doesn't hold up well in the fridge for too long.
