Pizza Sauce from Scratch
I didn't follow her dough recipe, but I did make her sauce. It intrigued me because it had a carrot in it. I assumed it was to make it sweeter without adding sugar.
Saute in olive oil: 1 small onion and 1 carrot, both diced for about 8 minutes. Add 1 28 oz can whole peeled tomatoes (I used Italian Roma with basil, but I think the Muir Glen roasted tomato would be good too!) Add 1 teaspoon coarse salt and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook for 40 minutes. Blend with immersion blender.
I thought the sauce came out a tad too sweet. I might just put half a carrot in next time and throw in a chipotle in adobo sauce to add a little more zest. But I bet the sauce goes over well with kids!
