Pizza Sauce


28 oz can of tomato puree (I use Muir Glen)

2 cups of the juice from a 28 oz can of whole peeled tomatoes (use a fork and mash down on the tomatoes to get the juice.  You can strain it if you want.)

½ cup of oil (I use organic olive oil)

1 TB of sugar (I use organic from Costco)

1 TB of garlic powder

1 TB of oregano

½ TB of pepper (can use up to 1 TB for spicier sauce)


Simmer uncovered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.  Allow to cool and store leftovers in individual sized portions in the freezer.  For a 14 inch pizza, I use about ¾ cup. 

For GFCF pizza, we use Namaste pizza crust mixes.  I use a 15 inch Pampered Chef pizza stone.  Make sure you “season” it first before using it the first time.  Put some olive oil on it and bake it a couple times.  It absorbs everything you put on it, so if you are GFCF, only cook GF foods on it and you can only use water to clean it. 

To make a GFCF pizza, I oil the pizza stone with olive oil, then sprinkle with organic corn meal.  Cook the crust.  Take out, spread olive oil over crust, then I add about ½ tsp each of oregano and basil over the crust.  Spread on the pizza sauce.  Then I add about 2 cloves of minced fresh garlic.  Then top with cheese and whatever toppings you want (we’ve done green pepper, onion, bacon,  ham, pineapple, etc.).  I use about 1 cup of Daiya mozzarella cheese from Whole Foods.  I’m not sure if this is Feingold approved or not.  It’s not in the shopping guide.  Freeze any leftover pieces of pizza for birthday parties or later use. 

Ian’s just came out with a new GFCF French bread pizza without soy that we like too.  I cook it in the oven instead of the microwave. 
Lately, I've been using Food for Life's GFCF English Muffins as the crust and making a mini pizza out of it.  Works well and it's quicker to make.  I just cook it in my toaster oven.
If you are not dairy free, you could use Whole Foods' 365 shredded mozzarella cheese.  365 has a pizza crust too.   I have a recipe for crust.  I'll post it soon.

If you are Feingold Stage 1, you could try using the recipe for Papa John's garlic sauce instead of the tomato sauce.  I've done this before and I told the kids it was garlic bread with cheese.
