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
2-3 fat cloves of garlic
½ teaspoon peppercorns
½ teaspoon rock salt
1-2 teaspoon 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 teaspoon 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.
