Habanero Tomato Pizza Sauce

This sauce can be used in place of conventional tomato sauce to lend a spicy kick to your favorite pizza recipe. It has a deep, rich tomato and garlic flavor with a complex heat from the habaneros. Perfect for taking a Pepperoni and Sausage or Supreme Pizza to the next level.
