Tomato sauce for pizza topping

There’s nothing like home made pizza.  I make the dough in my bread machine and we make our own tomato topping.  This is my husband’s recipe. You can either use it as is or give it a whizz with a blender.



about half a medium or smallish onion

1 tin chopped peeled tomatoes

15 ml tomato paste

a clove or 2 of garlic crushed

a healthy bunch of basil and oregano

salt and pepper to taste

a glug of sherry


  • Soften the onion and garlic over moderate heat in olive oil, but do not brown
  • Add the tomato and simmer
  • Add herbs, seasoning and sherry
  • Simmer for about 15 min

I often double or triple the recipe and freeze for future use
