Pizza Sauce

Does anyone have a good pizza sauce recipe or even a suggestion of what they buy use? I'm dying to try one of the pizza crust recipes but the sauce I have on hand has alot of carbs!

If you have a Trader Joe's nearby, try their Three Cheese Marinara. It's thick and really good for a pizza sauce IMHO. Comes in a glass jar and runs about three bucks for enough sauce to make 2 pizzas.

I make my own. I saute chopped onions and garlic in some olive oil until soft. Then I add chunky crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt and pepper and simmer uncovered until it gets nice and thick. (probably 1/2 hr)

I'm with Mackenzie on this, but if you're really, really in a hurry, just dilute some tomato paste with water (making as thick or thin as you like) and add garlic and onion POWDER, Italian seasoning, oregano, and pepper, red or black, depending on the "kick" you want. Taste for salt before adding any as sometimes the paste doesn't need any. Better if you have time to let it sit for awhile before using.

Ditto. The one in my fridge, has 9 net carbs, for 1/2 cup. That's about all you'd use, on an entire pizza.

I used to buy Emeril's Roasted Red Pepper Spaghetti Sauce...it has to be "Roasted Red Pepper", and it only had 5 net carbs, per serving. But, it's so darned expensive...Emeril's really proud of his spaghetti sauce.

Yep, I hear ya on the septic tank fun. At least we're on county water and not our own well!

Our favorite saying is, "That's what you get when you live in the country.... " LOL!

Oh, yeah. A real added treat when the power goes out during a storm is that we have no water as well as no electricity. No power = no well pump. No well pump = NO FLUSHING!!

Who would think you could live like the Clampetts (Beverly Hillbillies) while only 45 minutes from New York City???

Ah, well -- fair exchange for the peacefulness out here and the space. We have 2 gardens (so far) and have planted some tomatoes and other herbs in the veggie garden this year and perhaps we will make our own pizza sauce from scratch. (Okay, no way in hell that's gonna happen, but I thought I'd try to bring this back on topic )

Cheers!

Oh, I HAVE lived with wells before, so I feel your "no power" pain! Thankfully not this time. Septic tanks are enough problems all by themselves. But at least they don't count on electricity. They run on gas.

Sorry, couldn't resist!

Trader Joe's also has a good marinara with sausage. I've used THAT for pizza sauce too.

In my regular grocery stores... if I just take the time to read the labels of available brands of pizza and tomato sauce... I can always find 2 or 3 that are no sugar added (just tomatoes, olive oil, and spices) and are therefore low in carbs.

Just made some pizza last night and used Progresso crushed tomatoes in puree. No sugar added, a nice bright taste. You don't need much - remember you don't want your pizza too saucey. I covered the tomatoes with some fresh basil torn into small pieces and whole milk mozzarella. My DH loved it! (made whole wheat crust for him, Cleo's cauli crust for me).
