Tomato pizza base sauce is one of those recipes – you don’t know how badly you need it until it’s time to make a pie from scratch. Fortunately, it’s not only very tasty, but very easy!
Tomato pizza base sauce
- 200g fresh tomatoes
- small handful fresh basil leaves salt, to taste
- 200g pomodoro tomatoes, drained and peeled
- 30ml (2 tbsp) extra virgin olive oil
Blanch the fresh tomatoes in boiling water, 2 minutes. Drain and peel.
Place the tomatoes, basil, salt and pomodoro tomatoes in a food processor and blend roughly. Slowly add the olive oil, while the motor is running, until fully incorporated.
Divide the sauce into 60ml (¼ cup) portions for the pizza bases.
