Though you wouldn’t look at a pizza and think “added sugars,” many canned tomato sauces might include a bit of sugar to offset the slight sourness of tomatoes. While you can find healthier store bought sauces, making your own is a surefire way to bring some healthiness to your pizza pie.
For a pleasantly balanced sauce without the sugar, this goji berry powered marinara is a great place to start. But making your own sauce also gives you the chance to opt out of using tomatoes or other nightshades, if they bother you. Luckily that doesn’t mean sacrificing the tomato-y goodness: this nightshade-free sauce uses a blend of other veggies (like carrots, beets, and sweet potatoes) for a truly tasty alternative.
You also don’t have to feel locked into the classic tomato base when cooking at home: other sauces, like a pesto, can be great too. Pesto especially is a great way to sneak in an extra serving of veggies (like with this recipe).
