Keto Pizza Sauce Recipe
For the longest time I have resorted to making my own pizza sauce. Not just because it’s easy but also because it’s more affordable and I can choose what ingredients go into it.
I can adjust the ingredients to my liking and most importantly I always skip the sugar and make it sugar free. I know it’s believed to dilute the acidity in tomatoes and balances the sauce. I really don’t mind the taste without sugar especially as pizza is kind of savory in my opinion.
Though I make mine with no sugar added, I will give you an option in the recipe with the amount of sweetener to use. I encourage you to try the version without a sweetener first before adding some sweetener so you can see the difference
