A simple homemade sugar free pizza sauce. This low carb pizza sauce is a great way to use up a late summer crop of tomatoes or frozen skinned tomatoes.
Our tomato plants are very productive this summer. Last year, I skinned all our excess tomatoes and froze them for use over the winter. This year, I wanted to try canning some tomato sauce so I am trying out a few recipes.
Since one of my favorite meals is low carb pizza, I made a small batch of homemade sugar free pizza sauce with our garden tomatoes. And, the sauce is such a simple recipe.
Unfortunately, it didn’t make enough to fill my large canning jar. So I’m going to buy some smaller canning jars to use for future recipes.
