My Favorite No Cook Pizza Sauce

I doubt you'll go back to store-bought pizza sauce once you try this no-cook pizza sauce created and shared by my friend Ann on her blog Thibeault's Table .

Ann is an excellent, very experienced cook and baker.*

It is so flavorful and you can adjust the amount of herbs and seasonings according to your own preferences. It's my go-to pizza sauce.

She explains she devised this recipe after experimenting with several versions over the years. Since it requires no cooking it goes together in moments so you can use it immediately (or sometimes as I do, you can make it ahead, store in the refrigerator and use within a couple of days.)

For the best flavor use good quality Italian canned tomatoes, you can adjust the herbs and seasonings to your own taste.
I like to add an extra clove of garlic, and extra freshly cracked black pepper.

Ann mixes the ingredients right in the tomato can using a stick blender ~ how clever is that?!

Thank you for sharing this simple yet delicious recipe Ann.
* You must go visit her blog and see the incredible homemade breads she makes using her own no-commercial-yeast starter.
