No, but that is the best copycat recipe we've ever found for that sauce.

Wow, that would either be very good, or maybe kill you. Sounds like a good way to go.

I open up a large bottle of Classico spaghetti sauce and I use that for a variety of dishes including pizza. I like the flavor better than most of the commercial sauces. Generally, it takes less than a week to work through the whole jar of spaghetti sauce so there is no waste.

I'm really embarrassed to say that it never occurred to me to freeze leftover sauce portions in baggies... duh! Thanks!

So the one element that really upped my homemade pizza game was getting a pizza stone for the oven, but I think a usable facsimile can be a large pan, esp cast iron, turned upside down & preheated very high, highest oven temp possible, for quite a while.

We always use olive oil with garlic and spices for our pizza "sauce". It's easy to make just the right amount, takes just a few minutes, and is easy to brush on the pizza dough. Plus I'm not a big fan of red sauce, so I like the flavor better.

I throw left over sauce in zip locks and toss in the freezer. Same for left over tomato paste, heavy cream, etc.

I hate waste.

I prefer reusing things that would otherwise end up in a landfill somewhere or floating out at sea to choke a passing turtle or seal. If we must have plastic crap, at least reuse the plastic crap until it starts leaking. Plastic bags are entirely wasteful. I avoid them whenever possible.

They're fine in the microwave. An awful lot of the cheaper plastic boxes claim to be microwave safe but will degrade quickly in the microwave, especially when its something acidic like tomato sauce. They get these weird little bubbles and rough spots on the inside.

I repurpose everything possible. That includes the plastic boxes stuff like yogurt and sour cream come in. I can't buy stuff in more ecologically sound containers so I reuse the heck out of everything. I have a particular liking for glass jars with good lids, but the sour cream/yogurt tubs are useful as well.

I looked at the recipe. There is no way I would ever put that cr ap in my mouth. It's got everything in it but the kitchen sink. What a jumble!

I think people that form an opinion for something they have never tried are ridiculous and very foolish! I've read some of your other posts and it seems you enjoy knocking others.
