5-MINUTE PIZZA SAUCE

Hi Bold Bakers!

This 5 Minute Pizza Sauce is incredible! A few ingredients that you normally would have in your cupboard popped in a blender and done! The 5 minutes in the title includes the gathering of ingredients. And luckily it is the best Pizza Sauce recipe I have ever come across. However I can not take the credit, it is courtesy of TheComfortofCooking.com .

Pizza Sauce can also double up as a pasta sauce or even the base of a tomato soup without all the fuss of unesscessary pot’s and pans. I’m all about making my life easier and tastier at the same time. Who says that good food has to be hard work? sometimes the simplest of recipes are the best!

Make this sauce up in advance and keep it in a jar for up to a week. If you have left overs, pop it in ice cube trays and freeze for up to 8 weeks. No waste and then the next time you have a pizza night you have one less thing to worry about.

Hi Gemma, I’m sorry if this sounds dumb but can I use fresh tomatoes for this?

I love this quick and flavorful recipe. I added a table spoon of water, chopped up the garlic cloves, and a pinch of sea salt so I can use the immersion blender right in the plastic container that I stored my tomato sauce. Thank you Gemma 🙂

Hi Gemma. Instead of tomato paste how much double concentrate tomato puree should we use and how much water to water it down?

Excellent recipe. Balanced and meets all my expectations of an authentic tasting pizza sauce. I used a can of chopped tomatoes and decided not to puree them. The chunks of tomato gave a great flavour burst.

Hi Gemma,
Since I’m using homemade tomato sauce and tomato paste (not the one in the can) how much of those I need? I mean in tablespoon or cup measurements
