No-Cook Blender Pizza Sauce
Have you been disappointed when shopping for pizza sauce at the grocery store? So many have added sugar or unhealthy oils and many just don't have much flavor.
This pizza sauce is a game changer! It takes just minutes to prepare and has no added sugar. Fresh basil, garlic, onion and tomatoes are all quickly blended, making this ready in just a few minutes. Since it uses fresh tomatoes, use the best tasting tomatoes available.
I haven't tried it but I bet it would make a great pasta sauce too (cooked with a bit of red wine added to thin it a little) or just tossed with hot pasta for a raw spaghetti sauce.
