Do you grow tired or reading labels on seemingly simple products? So many food I look at don’t say GF on them, but don’t have any gluten ingredients listed. It’s that “natural flavor” or “spices” that make me put something back. Pizza sauce is one such product, so I’ll take 20 minutes out of my day make my own, store it in a squeeze bottle and put it in the fridge.
Pizza has many times been my saving grace when I’m on the verge of hangry. When I make crust from scratch, it’s usually a double or triple recipe, and I’ll make individual crusts so I can freeze them for another day (lots of pizza recipes here). So I’ll have the crust, but not always a decent sauce to put on them. This recipe is quick and easy to make, and uses dried herbs for ease of us (make sure they are GF…it’s usually processing that can be an issue for cross contamination). No more hangry for this girl!
Always double check your ingredients for Gluten Free status before using!
