Premade Homemade Pizza Sauce

make ahead frozen pizza sauce

We love homemade pizza.

And really, it’s not that hard. I’m sure you think it’s harder than it is. In fact, I think it’s one of the easiest meals to make a ton to freeze leftovers for easy lunches.

One thing I do to make the whole process that much easier is make a whole bunch of sauce at once and freeze it in 32 oz. yogurt containers, which is just enough for two jelly roll pan size pizzas.

And maybe a small round pizza too. Depending on how much sauce you like.

We’re saucy folks, so this’ll do two for us.

I buy a #10 can of tomato sauce from Costco and make it all into sauce at once using this FAVORITE recipe.

This sauce is yummy, and the more the better. And since it’s pre-made there’s less cleanup. Woot.

Add your favorite toppings and ENJOY!

Have you ever tried premaking pizza crust? If you make your favorite homemade pizza dough recipe, you can shape & partially bake the crust (just a couple of minutes, enough so that it sets), then wrap well & freeze it. When you want homemade pizza, you just treat it like you normally would: add toppings, bake, voila! Yummy & easy.

My husband and I are big pizza fans. We order out every Friday and eat in front of the TV. Our little private party.
