It was love at first lick. I had no idea that when I went to book club last week that my life would never be the same again…okay, at least my “Pizza Life”!:)
My friend Sunni was hosting this months book club and chose to make pizza. I fell in love with the sauce after the first bite! And when I asked her where she got her sauce, she said SHE MADE IT! And it that it was EASY! Yes! (fist pumped in the air).:)
I got the recipe from Sunni and promptly went home to make my own (okay, like 2 days later) and I don’t know what it is about this sauce, but it is amazing. Maybe its the garlic and paprika, maybe its the texture of the sauce, or maybe its the fact that it reminds me of the NYC pizza I ate all growing up. All I know is that I’m
ruined a complete convert for life and I’m never looking back!
P.S. Delicious Pizza Recipes are to follow so stay tuned!:)
