Everyone, this is the pizza sauce you’ve dreamed of! A light and chunky tomato based sauce, seasoned only with natural sources. A bit of salt from kalamata olives, and a hint of sweet from dates. Spiked with raw garlic cloves, and fresh herbs to create a pizza sauce bursting with savory flavors. And it is so easy to whip up, as this blender pizza sauce comes together in a single step.
This blender pizza sauce recipe came about on our travels through the high desert of southern Colorado, while visiting with my brother’s family. Their oldest was having birthday, and made a request for pizza. A fairly common request for a nearly 8 year old. He also requested the toppings, kalamata olives, onions, artichoke hearts, and tomatoes. Not a fairly common request for an 8 year old. But how awesome is that?! As my brother’s family maintains a vegan diet, and vegan recipes have become my favorite recipes to cook, I was pretty excited to get to work on this pizza.
As vegan recipes exclude all dairy products, this pizza would not contain cheese. I wanted to include some extra bits of flavor, so that even if you were used to eating cheese on you’re pizza (like me), you would not miss it.
This Garlic Herb Blender Pizza Sauce is precisely the merry of savory flavors every pizza should contain.
Serves: 32oz Mason Jar
2 medium size whole tomatoes
1 Large can Fire roasted Diced tomato
3 Cloves Garlic
Pinch of parsley
Pinch of Basil
2 tablespoon good quality olive oil (Pasolivo)
4 Kalamata olives
1 small zucchini
Spread over pizza crust, like this Vegan Pizza below, or enjoy warm with pasta.
