So the government is still shut down and my poor husband has been stuck at home and out of a job now for 2 weeks. Today I think he was finally pushed over the breaking point. He finished laundry and all of the folding, but not the putting away part. He actually cleaned out the dishwasher!!!! Can you believe it???? The dishwasher is his household arch-nemesis! Then he went to the store to buy ingredients to make pizza, and he actually made pizza sauce by scratch. Well, even though I have a food blog and have committed to writing and taking pictures of my food, I thought he deserved a shout out for his pizza sauce. I asked him if he made up the recipe or did he look it up, and if he looked it up, what site did he find it on. He said he looked it up, and of course he has no clue what site. So here is a pizza sauce recipe and our yummy family made pizza.
In a sauce pan chopped 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 of an onion, and 3 celery stalks thinly sliced. Sweat about 25 minutes until very soft. Add 1 can tomato paste plus 1-2 cans of tomato sauce until you reach your desired pizza sauce consistency. Add dried oregano (you could use fresh), bay leave, salt, 1 tablespoon sugar, fennel seeds, and thinly sliced basil. Cook for 2 hours. You should have enough for leftovers. Freeze in a zip top baggie.
Pizza Dough- We used Publix dough. You could make it, buy it, or get some sort of flat bread to make your pizza.
