Quick Homemade Tomato Sauce
Method

Quick and easy to make! This fragrant, homemade tomato sauce can be used for pizza or pasta. It’s always good to have some stored in the refrigerator to cut down on cooking time!

  • Empty the can of whole tomatoes into a bowl. Mash the larger pieces with a fork. Leave some pieces larger. It’s nice to get the full flavored taste of the tomato when you bite into a pizza.
  • Finely chop the herbs. If you don’t have any fresh herbs on hand, you can use dry herbs.
  • Add the herbs, ketchup, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, a pinch of sugar, the sauce and olive oil to the bowl with the tomatoes. Stir to combine. Add the grated parmesan last (optional).
  • Can be stored for 2-3 days in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap. You can use it any time you want to make a pizza.
