During the summer, we like to cook our pizza on the grill. The sauce has a kick, so if you’re a heat pansy turn it down a notch by reducing the pepper (either the crushed red, or the black...or both). I tend to think the red has more heat, but a better flavor. Mess with it as you will.
If you’re out of any of the herbs, try increase the Italian seasoning by the same ratio. You will still get a great sauce. If you’re lacking in the minced garlic, try replacing it with garlic powder. It’s a pretty versatile and forgiving recipe.
