You can make this easy homemade pizza sauce recipe at home in no time! You probably have most of the ingredients on hand already, and it will only cost you about a dollar.
Do you buy some things at the grocery store that you know you could make yourself for cheaper, but you can’t resist the convenience? I am definitely guilty of this. My biggest money wasters are bagged salads. I know I can get bunches or spinach leaves or hearts of romaine lettuce and wash and cut them myself, but I can never resist being able to just pour salad right into the bowl. What are some of your favorite convenience items?
Pizza sauce used to be another thing I would buy at the grocery store without thinking anything about it. It was actually my pickiness that inspired me to try making my own, not my desire to save money. Most jarred pizza sauces are a bit sweet, and I don’t like that one bit. I want my sauce to be strong and tangy, so I set out to create the flavor I wanted myself.
As it turns out, pizza sauce is really easy to make as you will see in this recipe! The only thing I had to buy for this recipe was a can of tomato paste, and everything else was already in my kitchen. There is almost always one brand of tomato paste on sale for around 50 cents a can, which is way less of an investment than a $4 jar of pizza sauce that will likely be too sweet anyway.Print
