When I moved to Seattle a few years ago, I left my family behind in the Portland area. For those of you that don’t know, the Portland to Seattle drive is not that long, about 3 hours. I should know, after all Ryan and I have made that drive countless times to visit our family and friends. Yet, some of my friends and family, I won’t name names, you know who you are, have yet to visit us. After yesterday however, I will have to remove my little sister from the list. She called me the other day to tell me she was coming up for a hair show (so nice to have a hair stylist in the family :)) and she wanted to stop by for dinner. Me, being the one always eager to have dinner guests, said “Sure! What can I make?” Her answer “Pizza”. Perfect, I love pizza and think it is even better homemade.
While my mozzarella addiction only intensifies with each bite, I also think the sauce can either make or break the pizza. For this reason I decided that I would make my own. One of the reasons that I am not a huge fan of store bought sauce is that they tend to be a little too sweet for me. With that said, I still add a little bit of sugar to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. That is just the beauty of making this at home, you can pick and chose the flavors you like.
It was nice visiting with my sister. We ate pizza, drank beer and watched Daisy of Love. Classy Klassy all the way ;-) Enjoy!
