I needed a barbecue sauce to use on a pizza and I tried to recreate one that I’d had on a pizza before.
Unfortunately, I failed miserably; making a barbecue sauce that tasted nothing like the one I tried before. What I did make was a barbecue sauce that was even better! This barbecue sauce is a sweeter sauce, and I think it would go really well with anything that is spicy or smoky. It was perfect on the thin crust pizzas I made!
The reason I love to make sauces rather than buy them is because, when you make a sauce from scratch, you know exactly what goes in it. No additives, nothing extra to give it a longer shelf life. Just deliciousness that you can say was homemade!
Carrie’s Sweet Barbecue Sauce
Servings: ~4 (2 tbs per serving)
Amount per serving: 64 calories- 17 carbs- 0g fat- 0g protein- 17g sugar
- 1 clove garlic- minced
- ½ c ketchup
- ½ tbs Worcestershire
- 2 tbs honey
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- dash of garlic salt
- lightly spray the bottom of a sauce pan with nonstick spray and sauté the minced garlic over medium/high heat.
- Once the garlic is browned, take it OFF the stove, and turn the stove off. (You want the pan to be cooler when you add the next ingredients)
- In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, Worcestershire, honey, garlic powder, and salt together in a bowl.
- When the pan is cool, put the ketchup mixture into the sauce pan and put it back on the stove. Turn the stove to medium/low heat. It will look like this:
- Heat up the sauce on the stove and stir for about 5 minutes or until the sauce is heated (NOT bubbling).
- When you’re done, let the sauce cool, then put in a Tupperware to keep or serve it with your dish! Refrigerate after using. It should last about a week in the fridge, covered.
