Preparing homemade pizza sauce was in my long time wish list. If pizza sauce is ready then preparing pizza is very easy as it is less time consuming and less work.You can prepare pizza sauce one day in advance, next day in the morning bake pizza base and assemble everything together along with toppings and bake pizza for dinner. Doesn’t this planning sounds great!!! Though I prepared this sause to use for Pizza rolls
4 boiled tomatoes puree
2 finely chopped onion
1tsp black pepper
4 finely chopped green chillies
3 tbsp butter/olive oil
2 tbsp tomatoe sauce (optional, I didn’t add)
Salt 3/4 tsp reduce or add as per your taste)
1/2 cups water (I didn’t add as I wanted thick sauce for pizza rolls)
2 tbsp mixed pizza spices (instead can use seprate your choice of pizza spices like oregano, rosemary, thyme, red pepper flakes etc…)
1+1/2 tsp sugar
Few crushed fresh basil leaves
Heat a thick bottomed pan and add butter/olive oil. Add finely chopped onion and green chillies. Saute them till till onions are light brown.
In this add boiled, grinded tomatoes puree. Keep the heat on sim and add pizza spices, black pepper and tomato sauce. Add water and let it cook until you get the desired thickness. Add salt and sugar, mix well and switch off gas. Add crushed green basil leaves and let it cool down completely
Fill pizza sauce in a clean bottle and keep it in the fridge. Just make sure that you are able to save it from your family members for next day’s pizza….!!
