Pizza Sauce

This is the basic recipe of Pizza sauce. Use it to spread on Pizza base before adding toppings of your choice.

Pizza Sauce
10 medium to large red tomatoes
1 bud garlic
3 to 4 teaspoons dry oregano
4 – 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt, pepper and sugar according to taste
Wash the tomatoes. Chop them finely. Keep aside.
Clean and Chop garlic.
Heat vegetable oil in a thick bottom steel wok. Add chopped garlic. Saute for 10 seconds on low flame.
Add tomatoes. Cover and cook till tomatoes are cooked. Mash them on the side of the wok with ladle.
Add salt and sugar. Keep sugar on higher side. The sauce should taste slightly sweet. Add pepper.
Cook till thick. Add oregano. Turn off the heat.
Once cooled, use for topping on pizzas.

My Notes – You may puree half the tomatoes and chop the rest. We love thick chunky sauce so we did not blend the tomatoes. Keep the sauce slightly thick and sweet. If the sauce is runny, it will make the pizza soggy. And yes, spread it on toasted and buttered bread….its YUM!

  1. I made something similar last night but I added a lot more garlic, a big shake of Korean chilli granules and I pureed it when it was finished. I poured it into a used Sriracha bottle and Steve had it on his homemade sausage rolls. I don't think that people appreciate sauces enough as they play a very important role in making our meals unique and being able to customise a great sauce (like this one) goes a long way to your families happiness :)
