Yesterday I was preparing Whole Wheat thin crust Pizza (will post the same later ) and as soon as I started to prepare the dough , looking up for ingredients , the pizza sauce it was finished . I quickly made this fresh pizza sauce with tomatoes , garlic and herbs. It’s much tastier than the market one. I just can’t stop myself to share its recipe. It’s simple to make and gives a nice flavor to your taste buds. So let’s start the recipe .yum
4 medium sized tomatoes , chopped
1 cup tomato purée
1 cup white onion , minced
4 garlic cloves , minced
1 teaspoon oregano leaves , dried
1 teaspoon basil leaves , dried
1 teaspoon red chilly flakes
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoon peppercorn , crushed
Heat olive oil in a pan , add minced onions and stir in .
Now add garlic , stir for 1 minute.
To this , add oregano and basil leaves and stir till herbs started expanding in size.
Add tomato purée and chopped tomatoes , stir continuously and add red chilly flake .Cook on low heat for 10 to 15 minutes till all tomatoes are tender and form a sauce like consistency.
Season with salt and pepper corn. Cool , give it a blend in blender and store in air tight container. For long life store in refrigerator.
Use this with pizza of your choice.
Serve- about 150 gm of sauce , used for 4 pizzas Cooking time-30 minutes
Note : You may use sun dried tomatoes or ready to use tomato purée.
You can replace the dried herbs with fresh one, in that case add them in the last.
