Spread 4 to 5 tablespoons of homemade tomato sauce.

PS: I like to make this homemade tomato sauce in batches and freeze it into small containers. You can use this sauce on pizza, pasta, for stews, as a dip, and many other ways.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 15 minutes or 20 mins if you like your pizza really crunchy.

Take out of the oven and enjoy warm.
