You can turn almost any of your extra CSA veggies into toppings on a homemade pizza. From the Cooking Close to Home cookbook, this simple, chunky, sauce yields about 3½ cups, enough for 3, 16-inch pizzas. It is also an excellent base for adding pasta sauce ingredients like ground meat, sausage, or other veggies later. You can also freeze it, in case you have more tomatoes than you know what to do with.
If you have fresh herbs, the conversion is one teaspoon dry equals one Tablespoon fresh (and fresh will taste so much better!).
