It's really great to have things like this on hand for those nights when time has just gotten away from you and you have to whip up something for dinner or unexpected company drops by.
Food prep is one of the keys to staying on plan and not caving in and ending up eating in a way that leaves you feeling tired and bloated.
You homemade sugar free pizza sauce will store well in the fridge for up to a week; any longer than that and freezing it is your best option.
For storage in the fridge, I recommend using a glass jar because of the acid in the tomatoes that can stain your plastic storage. I like a small mason jar, personally. (The ones below come in a variety of sizes and even include chalkboard labels!)
You can also put it into ice cube trays to pop out single servings for recipes such as Pizza in a Bowl. To do this you just measure out your scoops (1-2 TB per ice cube), put into the tray, and then freeze. After a day or two you can can pop them out and store your sugar free pizza sauce cubes in a bag in your freezer.
Another option is to put it into resealable freezer bags, smooth them flat, and then freeze; this works particularly well. Pull out your bag of sauce (which will thaw quickly as it was frozen in a thin layer) and get to making some dinner!
This low carb, sugar free pizza sauce is great to have at the ready for those buys nights or for when you're just in the mood for pizza.
Using Low Carb Pizza Sauce
Pizza sauce is a great alternative to a more traditional marinara because its thicker and it takes a lot less time to make.
You could add it to some chicken breasts with cheese in a low carb wrap for a simple chicken parm, or top some meatballs with it and melt mozzarella on top for a decadent meatball parm.
And of course you can use it to make Pizza Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. These are fun because they are out of the ordinary, but still have those comfort food familiar flavors.
You can also make the dough for this Low Carb Stromboli, top it with your homemade pizza sauce, and make whatever pizza your little heart desires! You could even do single serve "make your own" pizzas for the whole family!
