Introduction: Simple Pizza Sauce
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.
