Introduction: Simple Pizza Sauce

About: From cooking to renovating to gardening, I will give anything a go. Love to try new things and am passionate about sustainable living and waste minimisation!

I am a massive pizza fan and since buying a wood-fired oven I have been eating A LOT of it!

I have been making this simple no-fail sauce for a while as it is easy and super tasty!


2x 400g cans of crushed tomatoes

1x 700g bottle of passata

1x brown onion

4x cloved of garlic

Step 1: Fry

Roughly chop the garlic and onions and fry in a saucepan with a good slug a\of olive oil until it goes translucent. Keep the temperature low as we don't want it to brown.

Step 2: Tomatoes

Add the passata and tinned tomatoes to the saucepan. I like to rinse the passata bottle out with a little red wine and add that to the sauce but it's up to you!
Bring the sauce to a simmer and reduce!

Step 3: Time to Cook the Pizza

Once the sauce has reduced to a thick consistency you are ready to spread it on to your base. If the sauce is still lumpy feel free to give it a blend with what I would call a stick whizz(one of these).
If you need a recipe for a great base check out my instructable here and how to cook in a wood-fired oven here.
