Chunky Pizza Sauce

Some pizzas require a sauce with a little pizzazz. A plain pizza sauce is fine when you are making a pepperoni pizza or a cheese pizza. But when you make something a little fancier like Chicken and Artichoke Pizza, you need a sauce that can hold its own against the other flavors. That is when I make a chunky pizza sauce.

Making your own pizza sauce is quick and easy. I usually make the pizza sauce while I’m baking the pizza crust.

If you are looking for a really flavorful sauce, but dont’ want it to be chunky, blend it to create a thick, but smoother pizza sauce. This recipe makes enough for one large pizza, double or triple the recipe if you are making several pizzas.
