Super Easy Pizza Sauce and Pizza Dough Seasoning

My thoughts and prayers are going out to the victims of Japan, Asia, and the West Coast.  Today a massive earthquake, one of the largest ever recorded hit Japan at 8.9 magnitude, followed by a Tsunami with waves reaching 23 feet.  Prayers to the families of those that were lost and hoping that everyone is staying safe.

Saturdays are our pizza night and while I am getting everything ready for tomorrow, I bring you my go to recipe for pizza sauce and a dough seasoning I use to kick the dough up a notch.  I am still tweaking my dough, but I am hoping I finally got it right.  

Super Easy Pizza Sauce

6 oz Tomato Sauce
8 oz Tomato Paste
1/4 tsp Dried Oregano
1/4 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
1/4 tsp Dried Parsley

In a medium bowl, mix together tomato sauce and paste.  Add seasoning and mix well.  Makes enough for 2-3 pizzas.

I came across pizza dough seasoning while I was surfing through King Arthur's Flour website.  I was intrigued and wanted to try it.  But at $7.95 for 4 ounces....I am way to cheap to order that.  So I went looking on the internet to see if someone had created their own.  And sure enough they did.  I found this recipe over at Little Birdie Secrets.

Pizza Dough Seasoning

8 Tbsp Cheddar Cheese Powder, white or yellow 
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Onion Powder
1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning

Mix together and store in an air tight container.  Makes 1/2 pint.

Add a tablespoon to your favorite dough.
