It's good to have a basic pizza sauce on hand for quick dinners. It also freezes well - makes enough for four large pizzas.


Serves: 32 

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 350g tomato paste
  • 1 (680g) jar passata

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic and oregano until clear. Stir in tomato paste and passata; reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Let cool.

Altered ingredient amounts. For making 1 pizza- I recommend a 155g paste and a 250g sauce with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Why make more when you can make fresh so quickly. I also recommend using all dried herbs instead of fresh onion etc. It will blend better in the sauce. Also a tiny bit (1/2 teasp) vinegar will give it tang, and a little white sugar. I think the other spices you should taste for preference as you go along! - 29 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. I tried this in a bind (ran out of store bought) My husband and I loved it! I cut the recipe in half since I was making a small pizza, added fresh basil and eliminated the tomato paste (I ran out of that too!) I will be using in place of store bought going forward. YUM! - 29 Sep 2008


I prefer chunky pizza sauce, but my husband likes his smooth so I decided to make this recipe. It was really good. Has lots of flavour. I added a little pizza seasoning and some red capsicumflakes to mine. - 29 Sep 2008
