It’s another Meatless Monday, so you know what that means! A vegetarian meal from yours truly, and this time it’s homemade pizza sauce!

Pizza is one of those universal foods loved by so many, especially kids. Ask any kid, they’ll tell you their favourite food is pizza. Pizza is to a cook, what a blank canvas is to an artist. You can do whatever you want to your pizza! But one of the major steps in creating pizza is… the sauce! None of this store bought junk, homemade pizza sauce is as easy as one, two, three.

I’m sure there are some moms (and dads) out there looking around for ideas for Meatless Monday, and they may have children to take care of and are not be able to stand there and watch their, say, risotto cook. Maybe, they want something that their kids will enjoy making and personalizing. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Pizza, is definitely the ideal Meatless Monday dinner for families.

It’s pretty easy to find dough in the grocery store these days, so head out and buy yourself some dough and make tonight a pizza night! Stock up on mushrooms, mozarella cheese, red and green peppers, onions, pineapple, and really whatever vegetables suit your fancy! Just remember, make this a vegetarian pizza!

And the last step is the fun part, get creative with the toppings!!
