Pizza is one of my son’s favorite foods. I don’t make homemade pizza often, but he loves to help when I do.

Since he doesn’t like a lot of toppings on his pizza, a good sauce is a must for our meal. Recently, I had a chance to try making pizza with Dei Fratelli’s pizza sauce. This sauce is an easy way to make your homemade pizza taste as good as pizza from your favorite restaurant.

I once read that you should avoiding buying food with ingredients that you can’t pronounce, if you’re worried about a healthy diet. The ingredient list for Dei Fratelli’s pizza sauce includes tomatoes, sugar, sea salt, corn starch, dehydrated onion, olive oil, spices, dehydrated garlic, peppers, natural flavors, and vinegar.

It tastes as close to homemade sauce as you’re going to get without taking the time to make sauce from scratch.

The sauce is mild enough to be kid-friendly, but flavorful enough that adults won’t mind helping themselves to a slice of pizza, too. I normally add extra spices and seasonings when making pizza for my husband, but the Dei Fratelli sauce was fine on its own.

Dei Fratelli pizza sauce is also great for dipping mozzarella sticks or breadsticks. I don’t like a heavily sauced pizza, so I usually have a little sauce leftover when I’m making homemade pizza or pizza boats. But, using the extra for dipping sides is an easy way to eliminate waste.

Dei Fratelli is manufactured by Hirzel Canning Company & Farms in Toledo, Ohio. A fourth-generation, family-owned and operated company founded in 1923, Dei Fratelli produces canned tomatoes, tomato products, and sauerkraut in three processing locations. The company owns extensive greenhouses and farms in northwest Ohio.
