Pizza Sauce

When you have a completely lovely pizza crust, the toppings can be so simple. Just a nice sauce and a good cheese. This is my favorite recipe for a quick tasty pizza sauce. I like the sauce to be a little chunky, but you can use what ever you like. I have said it before, Muir Glen makes an awesome canned tomatoes. I am disappointed that they haven’t done away with the bpa, really counting on being able to can my own tomatoes this year.

Frontier Pizza seasoning makes the sauce, you gotta have it. Sub Italian seasoning if you’d like, but you will have a mediocre sauce. Places that carry anything in Fronteir brand should be able to order it. Check out Whole Foods. If you are local, The Good Apple carries it in their bulk section.

Let’s talk cheese…skim milk is terrible for you. It falls in the group of hydrogenated oils, soy and high fructose corn syrup. The cheap mozzarella cheeses are made with “part skim” which many take as a health claim. There are many problems that the processing of milk causes and like any other food, the further it gets away from its original state, the worse it is…that is where skim milk is in the realm of all things dairy. At least go for the whole milk mozzarella and it is great to do a blend. Trader Joe’s has a great selection of full fat, raw, even pastured cheeses. My next big project is to learn how to make mozzarella cheese. Any help??

16 ounces crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons Frontier Pizza Seasoning
2 tablespoons sucanat
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Stir to combine.


  1. Where do you get Frontier Pizza Seasoning?

  2. You can order bulk cheese curd to make into mozzarella- we split an order with friends last year, I can find out where it came from if you are interrested. I am not sure what kind of processing it has gone through, but once you have that, you just crumble it, add salt and then pour boiling water over it and knead it into cheese balls- it is soooo good.

  3. I buy Frontier seasoning from The Good Apple.

    Yes, Katie! Tell me where you got the curds so that I can look into it.

  4. You can make your own cheese curd using citic acid and diluted sodium chloride. I don't know what the if they are unhealthy but most of the chese making processes I have seen use those and rennet.

    This video tells how to make mozarella! That is something I am planning to learn after my goats freshen. Good luck!

  6. One other thing, you can order directly from Frontier online.

  7. Great information! I am excited to try it out. Thanks for all the suggestions.

  8. Kara, love your site. Can't thank you enough. Where did you get your pizza stone? I was thinking of going w/ Pampered Chef but they say not to pre-heat it. Any ideas?

  9. Pampered Chef's is not made to be used like a regular pizza stone. Here is what I have (2 of them) http://www.amazon.com/Old-Stone-Oven-14-Inch-16-Inch/dp/B0000E1FDA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1273796703&sr=1-1

    If you know anyone who has scrap granite tiles, those work too.

  10. Love! My friend and I got together and made mini pizza with your sauce and it is so tasty. We are big pizza people...well, my husbands family at least and am getting more on board with making my own now that I have a fantastic sauce. I actually found a pizza seasoning in the bulk section of our Winco Foods market that I used and it was great.


It's rude to eat and run. Humor me with conversation please!
