One of the big things that has stopped me from making home-made pizza is the sauce. I always have too much left over. Then I had a brainstorm, and re-purposed some plastic yogurt containers. They hold just about enough for a 12" pizza, and are easy to thaw in the microwave.

I always use zip-top bags for liquids. Freeze flat and you have the best possible storage layout for the space.

Yup. Little single pizza size containers and bigger family speghetti dinner size containers, in the freezer. Speghetti sauce and pizza sauce are pretty much interchangeable at my house.

We always freeze extra tomato sauce whether for pizza or pasta. When my wife makes a recipe of "Giuseppe's Bolognese Sauce" we freeze it in meal size portions.

Plastic yogurt containers are not microwave safe - I'd never use them in this way. Just buy reusable freezer containers and use those.

I just make the sauce from a can of crushed tomatoes, onion, garlic, salt, pepper and basil. If I need sauce for two pizzas, I use two cans of tomatoes.

Ok, I’ll play. I use 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can tomato paste, garlic, oregano and basil (fresh, if I have it).
Whirl this in the food processor until smooth.

It makes a fresh tasting sauce, and just enough for 2 med pizzas.
