I had bought some of that Naan bread and thought pizza would be really good made with it. I couldn’t bring myself to buy jarred or canned pizza sauce, so I decided to make some. I knew it had to be a bit thicker than my usual marinara, so I added some tomato paste for thickener. When you can literally drink your sauce, it must be pretty good. This one has a little red pepper flakes in it, so its a bit spicy. You can always eliminate it, if you don’t want the spice. There is 2 Tbsp of sugar in it also. If you don’t like your sauce sweet, eliminate it. I love sweet sauce on pizza, it reminds me of one of my favorite pizza shops Tripoli Pizza. A trip there is always worth it, their pizza is like non other.

This sauce would also be delicious for dipping with bread sticks or anything else.
