Who doesn’t enjoy a good Homemade Pizza Sauce that you can toss in your freezer for a rainy day? Actually, in my case a “lazy” day, I don’t feel like dealing with dinner. Yes, I know a recipe blogger that finally admits they don’t want to cook 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s true I admit it. I need a break some days from all the cooking, cleaning I do so believe it or not, I have been known to make a trip to my local bakery for bagels, french bread, or a bread dough to make a pizza in my cast iron skillet with this deliciously simple Homemade Pizza Sauce.
The good news is I already have the hubby Mr. McCallum on high alert he’s having Pizza Bagels for dinner; he’s actually in his glory because Mr. McCallum prefers simple foods like Pizza, Panini, Sandwiches, or just meat and potatoes. We are so day and night in the food preferences department these days. I’m sure y’all know how hard it is to figure them out sometimes.
