Simple Gluten Free Pizza Sauce
Do you love pizza, but have to avoid commercial sauce mixes because of hidden gluten containing ingredients? If so, you are like a lot of people who are discovering their bodies do not handle the gluten in wheat and many other grains as well as we assume. Fortunately, even if you do not happen to have a can or bottle of specialty commercial gluten free sauce on hand, this sauce will work well.
It is easy to make, tastes just as good as ordinary pizza sauces, and is a lot cheaper than buying special ingredients. You will love this gluten free pizza sauce on pizzas, bread sticks, pizza bagels and more. Try it with your favorite gluten free crust and get back to enjoying pizza all over again!
The tasty ingredients you will need to make such a sauce include tomato pasta, oil and water, which will combine to form the main body of the sauce, along with garlic, oregano, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper to add more flavors.
This sauce does not need to be cooked but it is a good idea to let it sit for half an hour so the flavors can blend. This is optional but recommended. If you do not have time then just spread it over the gluten free pizza crust and add your toppings. This recipe is really simple and you are likely to have all the ingredients or at least some of them in your cupboards. So if you are eating a gluten free diet and wondering whether pizza is OK for you, use a gluten free crust and this sauce and the resulting pizza will be really good.
- 1 six ounce can tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ cup water
- 3 tablespoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- Combine tomato paste, oil, and water in a medium sized bowl and stir until well mixed.
- Then, add remaining ingredients.
- Allow sauce to rest for thirty minutes to allow flavors to fully develop and permeate the sauce, then top pizza as normal.
Simple is often the way to go when preparing sauces to use on pizza. The simplest way might be to pop open a jar of commercial sauce but unfortunately these tend to be high in sugars and chemicals, and also likely to contain gluten in some form, so the answer is to make your own. That way you are in full control of the ingredients used, and you can also expect a lovely, fresh-tasting sauce. This recipe is easy enough for anyone to manage and it is guaranteed to make you smile because the flavor is absolutely perfect.
