Trying it tonight: Chunky Pizza Sauce (Updated: Liked it!)

We have pizza every week, most of the time I make it with my little helpers. We usually either use leftover spaghetti sauce or no-cook pizza sauce. Tonight I am trying a slow cook pizza sauce from Tammy’s Recipes called Chunky Pizza Sauce. It uses ingredients I have in my pantry, so nothing fancy to buy, but it takes time, 45 simmering minutes, so I had to plan ahead. The recipe makes 4 cups, so plenty to use tonight and freeze leftovers. Since it uses canned tomatoes and paste with spices, I’m thinking I could also make a few packets of “sauce mix” by measuring everything out into baggies or baby food jars, to make it faster to assemble in the future. It smells great, I cannot wait to taste the finished product. I’ll come back and update this with a review, of course 🙂

UPDATE: We liked it! I like the chunky texture from the tomatoes better than the smooth texture of the sauces we had been using, but the spices might be a little heavy for me. My husband thought it was a little sweet for his tastes, but felt the spices were fine the way they were. Next time I’ll cut back on the sugar, maybe only 2 tsp instead of 1 Tbsp and leave the spices alone for now. I still like the idea of mixing the dry ingredients in batches in baby food jars so all I have to do is open some cans and throw it all into the pot about an hour before the pizza dough will be ready in the breadmaker.
