Last week we were on a major pizza kick! The first part of the week we made pizza with Trader Joe’s pizza sauce that we had left over in the freezer. However, the following night we wanted pizza again and we were out of pizza sauce. I went online and found so many recipes for homemade pizza sauces and built ours on our tastes and what we like. The crusts of the pizza were actually pita breads that we had picked up at a local Medeterranian restaurant that we absolutely love.
