I keep this Induction friendly pizza sauce made up and frozen at the ready for a variety of uses. This is handy for when I just need that 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup for a pizza or some other Italian recipe. With the addition of a little browned ground beef, it would be a nice spaghetti sauce; as written, it makes a nice pizza sauce or Chicken Parmesan sauce. NOTE: nutritional info does NOT include optional spices, but they would add very little to the totals.
