Pizza Sauce with canned tomatoes
« on: January 04, 2010, 08:40:02 am »
Megan's Pizza Sauce:

3 large pizzas:

Ingredients:
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 brown onion
1 tsp garlic in jar or one clove garlic
large slice red capsicum
1/4 tsp dried chilli
variety fresh herbs - I used bay, sage and oregano, or 1 tsp pizza herbs
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 can crushed tomatoes

Preparation:
Heat oil on 100 speed 2 for 30 seconds. Add chopped onion and garlic (or chop onion and fresh garlic in TMX first).
Add diced capsicum, chopped herbs, sugar, salt and tomatoes.
Cook for 10 minutes/100/speed 2. Blend at speed 5 for 2 or 3 seconds.

Tips/Hints:
I heat a strip of capsicum in the microwave for 30 seconds and put in a plastic bag for a couple of minutes, then I skin it. I find it makes the capsicum really sweet. You can chop everything first, then clean the TMX and start from there, but for such a small amount, I just chop everything.
This can be doubled or tripled and then canned as per my Tomato Passata.
To make this even richer, add a Tbsp Tomato Paste or add 4 or 5 semi dried or sun dried tomatoes.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Thanks MJ. I've never done capsicum in the microwave, I'll have to try it.

Is the taste the same as roasted red capsicum MJ?  Certainly sounds an easier way to do them than under the grill if that is the case.

JD, not quite the same as it doesn't have the lovely charred, smokey taste, but definitely sweet and luscious.

Looking forward to trying our first ever pizza tonight!  Can I ask if this would be a 400g or 800g tin of tomatoes?  Thanks in advance!

Thank you!  It was absolutely beautiful.  I snuck in a carrot as well (when I chopped the onion) and nobody noticed  ;)

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I do many variations of this sauce. When I'm in a hurry, I just use tomatoes, tomato paste, herbs, onion, salt and sugar. It's still delicious! So much nicer than bought sauces.

So glad I found this recipe. I've only had my Thermo for a couple of weeks. I made this sauce today and I'm so happy with it and can't wait to eat it, it smells divine. Thank you.
