no-cook pizza sauce


I’ve made homemade pizza many times before. For the sauce I usually make everyday tomato sauce and have never second guessed it. But on one Friday night we had been planning a Star Wars pizza night with my five year old son River. We had been talking about it and thinking about it all week, which really means he had been talking about it and thinking about it all week haha.

On this particular day his little brother Fox would not let me put him down for a second. Like I couldn’t even wash a dish without his little cute hands pulling on my legs to pick him up. Tight for time, I lazily dumped all the ingredients into a blender and buzzed them for maybe 15 seconds. This is the best pizza sauce I have ever made or had for that matter. It’s not thick. This no-cook pizza sauce is light and bright and fresh tasting. The basil and garlic don’t get hidden in a thick tomato sauce.  I suggest scheduling your pizza parties now!
