Simple and Delicious Pizza Sauce

Why buy expensive jars or cans of pizza sauce when you can (very easily) make your own homemade? This recipe is not only uncomplicated, it whips up in minutes, and is no-cook, no-fuss. This sauce is made with pantry items that  are easy to obtain and common seasonings. It also stores easily -- just pop the remaining sauce into a container or plastic bag and freeze. Best of all, it is a delicious sauce.

Makes 2 cups of pizza sauce.

1 15 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 6 oz. can tomato paste
2 tbsp. paprika
1 1/2 tbsp granulated garlic
1 tsp Italian seasoning

Pour the tomato sauce and tomato paste into a medium bowl, and mix with a spoon until combined. Stir in the seasonings, adjusting to taste if necessary. Spread onto pizza dough, then top pizza as desired. Store any remaining sauce in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. Will keep for 5 days in the fridge, or 3 months in the freezer.
