Yesterday was a rainy, rainy day. After being semi-productive (hey, I showered) we settled in on the couch for a movie.
Pizza is our go-to on many Sunday evenings and last night was no different. But we kept this pizza simple. Well, sort-of. It looks simple but the sauce is actually homemade from our garden Roma tomatoes. Instead of going through the steps of making the sauce, I’m going to send you to Cooking Light’s visual – that’s the recipe I used. It tells you step-by-step how to make some of the most delicious sauce you’ll ever taste. I stopped at step 5 – no pasta was involved. I simply let it simmer until almost all the liquid is evaporated. And please, whatever you do, eat a spoonful straight from the stove-top. Jarred tomato sauce has nothing on this stuff.
I wanted the sauce to be the main topping on the pizza since it’s packed with flavor and a small hint of heat from red pepper flakes. On top of the sauce, fresh slices of mozzarella and once it was bubbly, a sprinkling of basil confetti. As for the crust, a gluten-free variety that Big Guy picked up at Whole Foods; I wish I could remember the company because it was fantastic. I’ll make a note the next time I pick some up.
