Easy Low Carb Pizza Sauce

I've developed a few low carb pizza recipes throughout the years, but I hadn't yet created an easy and delicious tomato based low carb pizza sauce to go along with it.

For my birthday, I got an Aerogarden…and I've been growing a few different types of fresh basil.

This low carb recipe was inspired because I was looking for a way to use up the fresh basil I had just harvested.

When on a ketogenic diet and keeping carbohydrates low, remember that tomatoes are inherently high in natural sugars. So, any tomato based pizza sauce should be used in moderation. You may want to consider a creamy alfredo sauce instead if you're keeping total carbohydrates very low.
