i have got a few requests to post some sauces like pizza sauce, schezwan sauce, peri peri sauce etc and i have already shared them.

as i have mentioned before, the sauce is made with fresh tomatoes. i only get to buy the tomatoes which are available in the indian markets. we don’t get many varieties of tomatoes in india. these tomatoes are the usual indian tomatoes which are red and ripe.

this pizza sauce works well for 4 to 5 medium sized pizzas. the recipe can easily be doubled. since the method and recipe is easy, you can adjust the quantity of herbs as per your choice. i have also shared few baked pizza versions like:

apart from pizza, the sauce also works well with pasta. just toss the cooked pasta & steamed/sauted veggies in the sauce. top with some cheese and bake or grill the pasta till the cheese melts.

you can make the pizza sauce a bit chunky or smooth. i have pureed the tomatoes with some bits for a chunkier version. you can also chop the tomatoes finely. for a smooth version, puree the tomatoes very well.

  1. amazing…Tried it out today…wonderful!
    by the way i live in chennai and none of the stores sell fresh basil…how do you grow them at home?
    thanks again for the recipe!!

    • thanks radhika. basil can be grown from seeds just like the way tulsi can be grown from seeds. both are from same family of herbs. alternatively you can use dried basil which will be available in stores. basil seeds will be available in a plant nursery shop or even online.

  2. Had tried this recipe earlier. Tastes really like ready-made sauce. Kids just loved it. Thanks a lot.

    • thanks priyanka and nice to read your feedback.

  3. Can i use readymade tomato puree instead of tomatoes?? If yes how much for this recipe..

    • you can use ready tomato puree. about 1.5 to 2 cups will work.
