Making Pizza Sauce

Young After School students made pizza sauce the other day for a Make Your Own Pizza Night at school. Families will make their own pizzas together at school this Thursday. Then they’ll take homemade tomato sauce and pizza dough home with them to create their own  pizza night. The girls making the sauce on the far left had the best time squishing those tomatoes. Older students added diced onions and garlic. I cooked the whole mixture down to a sauce that night. It’s stored away in freezer bags until Thursday. Can’t wait!
