We enjoy making our own tomato sauce from scratch - our main ingredients are tomatoes and carrots. We find that the sweetness of the carrots give the acidity of the tomatoes a good balance in flavor. For Friday's dinner, we wanted to make another thin crust pizza but didn't have any carrots for the tomato sauce. We used red beets instead of carrots and also added some hot peppers for spice. The results were amazing! Very tasty! Red beets are healthy - they provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support.Below: Gluten free thin crust pizza made with brown rice and green pea flour!
