Friday Night Pajama Party - Pizza Sauce

Tonight for our pajama party I made 2 large pizzas by doubling the dough recipe from last week found here: Fast and Easy Pizza Dough. I did make a few changes. I used a pizza stone this time. After making the dough I placed each ball on a piece of parchment paper and lightly coated it with olive oil to keep it from drying out. I let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then I rolled it out into a 14" circle and brushed it with a little more olive oil and sprinkled with garlic salt then poked it with a fork. Then put the sauce and toppings on. I slid the pizza, parchment paper and all into the oven on a preheated pizza stone and baked it at 475 for about 8 minutes. It turned out so good! The crust was thick and crispy. I will for sure be using this method again.

I used Canadian bacon and slivered almonds on this pizza:

Here is the recipe I use for my pizza sauce. It is so easy to make and tastes so much better than anything you can buy. I like to triple the recipe and divide it up into small containers and put them in the freezer.

Basic Pizza Sauce
Makes 2 2/3 cups

1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
Table salt and ground black pepper

Cook oil and garlic in medium saucepan over low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, increase heat to medium, and cook until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
