One of my favorite meals to cook at home is pizza. We seem to be in a groove where we’re making pizza every weekend and it’s followed up by movie night. In fact, there was one random Wednesday I made pizza and the kids were so confused. They thought surely it was a movie night instead of a “school” night!

This pizza sauce recipe is so simple and only involves ingredients from your pantry. You can whip it up ahead of meal time as it keeps well in the refrigerator for at least a week. Bonus, there’s no cooking! Just stir the ingredients together and you’re good to go.

Equipment-wise, it doesn’t get much simpler than only needing a can opener, a bowl and measuring spoons.

OXO Can Opener

This can opener has stood the test of time. I’ve had it over a decade, and it still works great every time. No need for a fancy electric opener.

Measuring Spoons

Stainless steel measuring spoons are the way to go. The engraved lettering guarantees the lettering won’t wear away. This is also a great set because it includes the 1/8 teaspoon and the 1/2 tablespoon. While not that commonly used, it’s nice to have them when it comes up.
