Fresh Tomato Pizza Sauce

I love cooking for my kids. And the pre-packaged sauces really aren’t good for them. They are full of sugar, salts and flavourings. I would prefer to know exactly what is inside the sauces I am cooking with. So that’s why I make them myself.





Preparation Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 20 minutes

Yields 2 cups


Ingredients

6 ripe tomatoes

2 teaspoon oil

1 large clove galic- minced

1/4 onion- chopped

1 teaspoon mixed herbs

3/4 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes

Salt- to taste

1 tablespoon tomato puree.

1/2 tablespoon butter






Instructions


  1. Slit the tomatoes on the Botton with an X.

  2. Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Remove from the water and cool to room temperature. Remove the skins and discard them.

  3. Chop 3 of the tomatoes, grind the other 3 until smooth.

  4. Heat the oil In a pot. Add the onions and cook on medium heat until translucent. Add the garlic and sauté 1 minute until fragrant.

  5. Add all the tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Mash it as much as possible.
