The most important element of cooking is to balance flavors and textures. When it’s done well, eating becomes a true experience. Pizza is a perfect example of this with its crunchy and chewy crust, balanced with a tangy and velvety tomato sauce. Toppings contribute their salty or earthy flavors and the cheese harmonizes the medley as a fatty, and ‘oh so satisfying to chew’ flavor blanket.

Hungry yet?

It can be hard to imagine a pizza without the classic tomato-based sauce, especially if you’ve never had one. In America, commercial pizza restaurants have offered a few alternatives: BBQ sauce, pesto, and the mysteriously named white sauce. These substitutes are pretty common so we have been inspired us to share with you, two pizza sauce alternatives that are unique and delicious.


Pizza features the chipotle sauce and includes pulled pork, parmesan cheese, red onions, corn, and fresh basil. 

Chipotle Me Down for Nap Time

  • 1 can of chipotle chilies (adjust for spice level)
  • 1 large onion peeled and halved
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground allspice
  • Salt to taste

Place onion halves and tomato on a sheet tray and place under the broiler making sure the cut side of the onion is facing up. Cook until onion is completely black on the cut side and tomato skin is charred about 6 minutes. When the onion and tomato are cool enough to handle cut them into quarters and place in a blender. Add the chipotles, honey, vinegar, and spices to the blender and blend until smooth and add salt to taste.
