Simple Tomato Base
Until now, I've been making a quick and straightforward pizza base mix from various types of store-bought passata or pizza sauce and adding in some additional ingredients to enhance the flavour.
That method is always acceptable but if you're after a quick and easy option but if you're prepared to spend a little bit more time, then here's a simple way to improve your pizza base sauce.
- 1 Small Onion or Half a Large Onion
- 400g Tin of Chopped Tomatoes
- Chilli Flakes
Take one small or half a large onion, finely chop it and saute it in a small saucepan until they have softened.
Add the contents of a tin of chopped tomatoes, stir and bring to a low simmer. Allow the tomato and onion mixture to simmer down until it's a nice thick sauce.
Step 3 - Optional
Once the sauce has thickened a little, you can add in some optional ingredients to make a variety of different sauces.
Let the mixture cool down, and then you're ready to go!
