Pizza Sauce - Oven roasted Tomato Sauce

Pizza sauce, I don’t know why I took so long to post this recipe. We have pizza night every fortnight and I make my own pizza sauce every time. But I still haven’t posted the recipe here. When I chose Italian sauces as this month’s theme for Blogging Marathon, I knew the first recipe would be my pizza sauce. I love the sauce with roasted tomatoes, this can be done on the stove top too, but I love the oven, as I don’t have to stand near and stir. Dump everything in a pan and roast it until done and blend and season! Tada and you have the best sauce ever. This sauce is enough our pizza dinners, usually 4 or 5 homemade medium sized pizza. If at all there is some leftover sauce, it gets mopped by my kids for next day's breakfast.
5 no’s plump tomatoes
1 onion
2-3 fat cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp peppercorns 
1/2 tsp rock salt 
1-2 tsp of dried herbs (I used oregano and basil)

  • Roughly chop onions and tomatoes, take them in a baking tray. Add garlic and drizzle 2-3 tsp of olive oil on top and mix it roughly with your hands. Roast in the preheated oven at 200C for 35-40 minutes.
  • Once done, remove it from the oven, let it cool, add dried herbs, salt and pepper to it and process it in a food processor until smooth or if you like it a bit chunky make it little chunky.
  • Remove it to a glass container and refrigerate, it will stay good for a week. But mostly this is the amount I make for our pizza dinner and it’s gets over the same day any leftovers my kids mop it for the next day breakfast.

  1. Home made sauces are always so good with fresh flavor and taste. Good one.

  2. I like the ingredients that went into the sauce. I usually sit and lick chutneys after a meal, before washing my hands. This sauce fits that category. A nice flavorful sauce.

  3. I liked the way sauce is made using roasted tomatoes. I make it but without roasting. This looks great, easy and convinient too. The roast would be adding a delicious lovely flavour. Nice.

  4. Roasting tomatoes in oven is easier than the stove top method and also it gives a really nice flavour. And this sauce looks so good and flavourful. Homemade sauces are the best..

  5. wow that is one amazing Italian sauce priya , looks so tempting and love the oven roasted method , must be very flavorful. Such simple ingredients used and love how you explained..

  6. I have somehow never oven roasted tomatoes. I think I will do this soon. Loving the flavors of the sauce.

  7. Homemade Italian sauces are best. I once bought a jar from store and regretted it - it was so oily. Over roasting the tomato is a great idea. Will try next time.

  8. Love these sauces Priya, looks so good and inviting..I guess the most basic ones that we always make never gets to the blog!
