Hearty Pizza Sauce

6 mins (prep 1, cooking 5)
9 ingredients
1 servings
To top off whole wheat pizza dough, or rotini/fusilli pasta noodles. (Note for dieters: If you're adding 1/2 cup of shredded cheese, it's only going to add about 100-120 calories to the entire sauce, and 10g. of fat. That's actually pretty low once divided amongst the pizza.)

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (hunt's original is best in this situation)
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt substitute (my mother always has "nosalt" around the kitchen)
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon pepper (more pepper for a spicier paste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (too much and the sauce tastes minty)
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon basil (french basil is best)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley, ground (optional)
  • 1 ounce cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1/4 cup) (optional)
