Additional Information

No pizza sauce on hand? You can quickly make your own using an 8-ounce can of tomato sauce. Just stir in 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon garlic or onion powder and heat to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes to develop the flavor. Serve warm.

Pick up a bag of Caesar salad at the supermarket to complete this easy meal.
