Monday Night, Pizza Night

My mother taught me that barbecued pizzas are delicious and we try to incorporate this meal at least once a month. Just take pizza dough, I buy the ready made dough from Trader Joe’s, sprinkle with olive oil and barbecue. For the sauce, I made a very easy homemade sauce (recipe below). The toppings this time were sausage, pepperoni, sweet hot peppers, cheese, black olives and pineapple. We like to barbecue the dough, add the toppings, and melt the top under the broiler. Delish!

Tomato Pizza Sauce

1 large garlic clove, minced
¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
1 T olive oil
28 ounce can Italian plum tomatoes including the juice

In a heavy saucepan, cook the garlic and the pepper in the olive oil for a couple of minutes. Squash the tomatoes with your hand and pour into the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook it over moderately low head, stirring occasionally for 20 to 30 minutes or until the sauce is thickened and reduced to about 2 cups. Season with salt. The sauce keeps in the frig for 1 week, or freeze the leftovers.
