Simple Tomato Pizza Sauce


This basic tomato sauce can be made in less than thirty minutes with basic ingredients and canned tomatoes. While fresh tomatoes are preferred, finding perfectly ripe tomatoes can be difficult, and canned tomatoes will give consistent results throughout the year. Moister in fresh tomatoes can also vary, giving thin-tasting tomato sauces, regardless of how much the sauce is reduced during the cooking process. Adding tomato puree can help thicken the sauce. However, this can give an overcooked flavor. Therefore using quality tinned tomatoes with this recipe will help you achieve the best consistency and taste every time.


425g of Pizza Sauce – enough for 1 x Chicago Deep Pan or 2/3 12” Round Pizza Bases.


  • 2 tbs Olive Oil
  • ½ Medium Onion
  • 800g Quality Tinned Tomatoes
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Oregano
  • ¼ tsp Fresh Black Pepper

Tools Used:


  1. Dice the onion and then gently sauté in a pan with the olive oil and a pinch of salt until soft and lightly brown. Gently sautéing rather than flash frying the onions will ensure they become sweet to the taste.
  2. Open the tinned tomatoes and drain the excess liquid into a separate bowl.
  3. Now add the tomatoes to the sautéed onions along with the Oregano, Salt and Black Pepper.
  4. Cook on medium-high heat, stirring every minute for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes.
  5. Use a food processor or hand blender to puree the cooled sauce, leaving a little texture to the sauce as over blending can break the seeds which will give a bitter taste to your sauce
