This months Daring Baker challenge was pizza, so of course I had to make a good base sauce. This is roughly the same sauce I use for pasta when I'm in a hurry, and the basic tomato sauce I use for a base in any tomato based dish :)
This sauce will keep in the fridge for over a week in an airtight container.
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1/2 large onion
2 - 4 cloves of garlic
1. Fry the onion in a little oil until softened and brown.
2. Add in garlic and fry for another minute or so.
3. Add in the tomatoes.
4. Simmer the mix for 10 - 15 mins on low heat.
5. Blend the mix.
Serving and Variations :
For pizza - spread a thin layer across the base (about a tablespoon for a 9" pizza)
For pasta - add in 1cm of ginger and a handful of chopped mushrooms before simmering, blend if you like smooth sauce, don't if you like chunky
