Easy 20 Minute Skillet Pizza Sauce

Easy 20-Minute Skillet Pizza Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #homemade #tomato #sauce #recipe

This is a quick, easy pizza/pasta sauce that you can whip up in just 20 minutes. The “secret” to making it so quick is to make it in a larger, flat pan like a frying pan, rather than a saucepan. This helps the sauce cook and thicken faster. I made this easy tomato sauce for […]

with Rachael Ray’s Pizza Crust (adapted for the bread machine) Have you ever had a white pizza?  The first time I encountered a white pizza, I have to admit I was a little befuddled.

Some little voice inside of me told me I needed to make Romesco sauce again. It’s a marvelous sauce … the kind that I would lick off the plate, regardless of what it was served on (or who was watching). A spanish-based sauce I met last year some time, it has ground almonds along with […]

Hummus Havarti Harvest Pizza
