When cooking pizzas on your pizza oven, you’ll get the very best flavour from your pizza if you use a great tomato pizza topping. In our opinion, it’s worth taking the time to make your own tomato pizza sauce for use as the base topping. This simple recipe takes only a few minutes and can be frozen for future use.

Ingredients – Makes approx’ 20 pizzas

Garlic – 2 cloves

Olive Oil – 4 tablespoons

Dried oregano – 2 tablespoons

Tomato puree – 350g (12 oz)

Method
Mixing

Finely grate the onion and garlic cloves and set aside. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan using a medium heat and add the grated onion and garlic along with the oregano. Sautee until the garlic and onion appears clear, then gradually stir in the tomato puree and passata sauce. Reduce the heat to a low setting and simmer for 15 minutes stirring regularly. Set aside into a bowl and allow to cool. The topping is now ready to use.
