Homemade Pizza Sauce – Vegan Pizza with Daiya Cheese!
Who doesn’t love yummy pizza?! I love making pizza at home it is definitely the preferred kind – homemade pizza. It is one of the most kid-friendly foods I know. Making pizza at home gives me an opportunity to use my kitchen gadgets too! I make my Pizza Dough in my bread maker and then bake up the pizza in my pizza maker. My family knows how much I enjoy cooking so typically my gifts (Birthday, Christmas etc.) include kitchen gadgets. I’ve included a recipe here for my pizza sauce. The Pizza made today, pictured, includes: Homemade Pizza Dough & Sauce, Fresh Broccoli, Chopped Spinach and Daiya Cheese. I also season the pizza after adding the toppings with Italian Seasoning and Salt/Pepper. Enjoy!
