The Grand kids and a Touch of Basil pizza graced and honored our humble nest last evening. Pizza and old movies go well together! Odd choice of movies though...Gettin Hard and Rambo? Oh well, life is very good!
No photos, but today I tried a homemade pizza sauce. Everything went in without measurement of any kind other than "that looks like about the right amount."
Roma tomatoes from the garden
diced onion from the garden
fresh basil from the neighbor's garden
mixed up in blender.
End product looked too thin-- I thought it should probably be simmered until thick, but I was lazy and just spread some on a crust.
SWMBO was impressed.
When my sauces are too thin, I melt two parts butter in the microwave, add three parts flour and whisk together. This makes a ball of roux you can then stir into the sauce. Repeat as needed, but do let it cook for 5-10 minutes before adding more.
