BackstoryI have not tried this yet. The recipe is in this month's (June, 2008) Family Circle issue. I try not to eat a lot of tomatoes (which are in the "shade plants" of foods...potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and egg plant.) I have found if I do not eat them my arthritis is not as bad.
But I enjoy pizza very much! I know it will not be the same without the pizza sauce I love, but I am anxious to try it (so I won't hurt.)
