Simple Pizza Tomato Base

Homemade Pizza Quick and Easy Pizza Base Sauce

Until now I've been making a quick and simple pizza base mix from tomato puree, chilli sauce and garlic ketchup. This recipe is fine if you're after a quick and easy option but if you're prepared to spend a little bit more time, then here's how to improve your pizza base sauce.


You'll need a small onion, tin of chopped tomatoes and some optional extras.

Step 1: Take 1 small or half a large onion, finely chop it and saute it in a small saucepan until soft.

Step 2: 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.

Optional Extras

Step 3: Once the sauce has thickened you can add some extra chilli, garlic, tomato puree etc to suit your taste.

I recommend starting this mixture first before you make your dough which gives the sauce time to thicken nicely before it's needed.

That's it enjoy your new pizza base making.
