Thin Crust Veggie Pizza with Homemade Pizza Sauce

I usually make homemade pizza crust, but for those times when I don’t really have the time to pull out my mixer, I pick up some Pillsbury pizza dough from the refrigerated section at the store.

Ingredients

Have you heard the expression – the sauce is boss?  This one is and it is so quick and easy to make.  You simply take a can of tomato paste and a can of tomato sauce that has basil, garlic, and oregano in it and combine them together.  The seasoning is in the sauce.  And if you like things a little on the sweet side as I do, add a touch of honey.  (No more than a teaspoon.)

Sauce and Crust

Spoon a generous layer of sauce over a prebaked (5 minutes) Pillsbury thin crust, add toppings, and then bake again and you, too, will be enjoying a delicious pizza at home.
