Tomato and Basil Pizza Sauce Recipe

The weekend is creeping up, we are all looking forward to indulging in something yummy. For most, pizza is the ultimate weekend treat, but many haven’t tried making it themselves! This pizza sauce recipe can be used on any style pizza, and is unbelievably easy.

Designed by our friends over at Fat Mow Cooking the recipe uses our ambient chopped onions as a base for the pizza sauce. Resulting in a deep intense flavour with minimal effort.

You can add your favourite toppings, but to be honest, a sprinkling of cheese and a handful of basil is all your really need!

What you will need for the pizza sauce recipe

  • 3 heaped tbsp of our ambient onions
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic
  • 1 heaped tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 can chopped toms
  • 1/2 tin water

We are very excited by this pizza sauce recipe, as any left over can be used as a delicious pasta sauce!

How to make the pizza sauce

  1. Gently heat the onions and garlic in a pan, stirring continuously to ignite the fragrance of these key base ingredients
  2. Add in the puree after about 6-7 minutes and cook through
  3. Stir in the tin of tomatoes, refill the tin with water and pour in. Don’t forget to season as you go!
  4. Simmer for 30/40 minutes, stirring every now and again.
  5. Add in chopped basil and more seasoning if required. Sugar can take away some of the bitterness of the tomatoes, so feel free to experiment. Just remember to taste as you go.

Whether you are making your pizza from scratch, using a pre-made base or a ready to roll solution, we know this pizza sauce will work beautifully.
