*Because a Margherita pizza is all about the sauce, I like to make my own whenever I have the time. Using a jarred or canned sauce is fine too, but making your own only takes a few extra minutes and really increases the flavor! If you have the time and inclination, try this sauce and let me know what you think!
1 large can of chopped tomatoes (I like to get salt-free)
4-5 sundried tomatoes (if they are hard, try soaking them in warm water for a few minutes)
2 heaping tablespoons nutritional yeast
1 large handful of fresh basil
1 small handful of cashews (roughly 8-12 cashews)
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
cayenne pepper to taste
a pinch of date sugar or your favorite sweetener
salt and black pepper to taste
Blend all of the sauce ingredients together until smooth.
