Believe it or not, this pizza’s sauce has no tomato. That’s because I’m allergic to tomatoes. It’s got pureed bell peppers and carrots as well as all the spices and herbs for traditional marinara sauce.
The sauce tastes similar, but not alike. It was never that good on pasta. However, it tastes pretty good on pizza, like this one.
I miss being able to enjoy regular pizza (my tomato allergy developed last year). The only pizza I can enjoy from public is white pizza. I used to enjoy pizza from Costco, Red Baron, and other places. I always preferred the ones with more sauce and thicker crust than the traditional NY pizza.
Sadly those days are gone. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to eat classic pizza ever again. It really sticks.
I went to a social event where the host ordered pizza, and I couldn’t have it. So I brought my own dinner.
I’m glad I tried this. Now I can enjoy homemade pizza either on premade crust or dough I make from scratch.
There’s always something you can figure out if you can’t enjoy a certain food. Substituting can be fun. It may not be the same, but similar is good enough.
