Pizza! Yay! Today I am sharing my recipe for homemade pizza sauce. And do you know what that means? Yes, a gluten-free pizza crust recipe to come soon!
This sauce is so easy to make. I use a 7-ounce glass jar of Bionaturae organic tomato paste to start. Then I mix in olive oil, honey, salt, and herbs. That's it! Pictured here is a triple batch. We are visiting with family right now so large batches are the norm these days.
Our two girls and their two cousins played restaurant tonight complete with hand written menus, aprons, and wine! This pizza sauce with a Gluten-Free and Yeast-Free Buckwheat Crust, Homemade Gluten-Free Seed Crackers with apples and french sheep cheese, a large Pear Pomegranate Salad, Whole Grain Flatbread, freshly made butternut squash lasagna with Macadamia Nut Cheese, Vanilla Tapioca Pudding, and a sparkling hibiscus cooler were all on the menu! It was quite a feast for all 12 of us.
Luckily the adults got to relax while the girls busily took orders and ran back and forth from the dining room to the kitchen carrying plates of food!
Use one recipe of the sauce for a 12-inch pizza. I use a rectangular stone baking sheet which is 12 x 15 inches. The 7-ounce jars of Bionaturae tomato paste can be found at most food co-ops and health food stores. Once the jars are empty I soak them in hot water to remove the labels, wash them, and use them to store dried herbs. They also make great cups for smoothies when we are out and about. My toddler twin boys love to drink smoothies just about any time of day. Green, purple, it doesn't matter!

Please remember that we are starting the Elimination and Detoxification Diet on this blog in early January. That means that I will be posting recipes according to each phase of the diet in our book. You'll need the book to understand the diet and follow along. I will also be posting non-elimination diet recipes here and there during this time too. I think most folks are ready for a cleanse and maybe some weight loss in January so it seems like a great time to start!
