This sauce is naturally gluten-free, vegan, & nut-free as long as you double-check your spices to avoid contamination.
If you are on one of the many diets avoiding sugar you can omit, or use coconut sugar. You could even use a sugar substitute.
This sauce is best made fresh when needed. If you have leftover sauce store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
If you are premaking pizzas for the freezer, you can freeze this sauce just fine. It is so easy to make there is no need for individual recipes or appetizers.
