Today's Junque Food
JunqueFood – last night’s pizza was born of leftovers and pantry items. I'd made the crust a while ago, and it was frozen, just waiting to be used. The toppings were a few slices of crumbled bacon, mushrooms, and some awesome canned pickled banana peppers from last summer. This is probably one of the best pizzas I've ever concocted, and I will be making it again!
Quickie Spicy Pizza Sauce
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 large diced onion
1 large diced green pepper (or one cup frozen green pepper)
½ Tsp sugar or acid reducer of your choice (I use Agave Nectar)
Chicken or veggie broth/stock/bouillon
Splash of Balsamic Vinegar
Dash of Cayenne Pepper
Crushed, dried Basil
Heat a pot with some olive oil, add the onions and peppers. Cook the onions until translucent, add can of tomatoes. Add cayenne, sugar, vinegar, & stock. Bring to a quick boil, the lower temp to simmer. Simmer for an hour or so until flavors melded. Turn off temp and stir in crushed basil.
Can be used immediately, or you can parcel into 3-4 freezer containers & freeze until needed.
