  • Dutch oven or any heavy bottomed pan



  • Heat a heavy-bottomed pan or a Dutch oven. Add the oil and let it get hot.
  • Add the garlic first and sauté until it begins to turn golden brown.
  • Next, add the onions and sauté until it turns translucent.
  • Finally, pour in the tomato puree/tomato Passata into the pan. Add the salt and the seasonings.
  • Simmer uncovered at a low-medium flame for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and use or store it for later!


  • Olive Oil: Extra virgin olive oil that is meant for stir-frying works great here. If you don't have olive oil, replace it with any flavorless vegetable oil.
  • Onions: Use red or yellow onions. You can choose to use lesser quantity or skip it altogether if you don't have onions or if you're not a fan of onions.
  • Garlic: Skip it or reduce the amount of garlic. But I suggest that you use it.
  • Consistency: If you are not bothered about the chunky texture leave this sauce as it is. If you want a spreadable sauce, split the sauce into two, and blend one part. Mix it both together. On the other hand, if you want a super smooth and spreadable sauce, blend them all!
  • Storing: Store in a clean glass jar and put it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. To store in the freezer, store in an airtight container, or split into equal portions in different resealable bags. 
  • Reusing frozen sauce: To reuse, thaw the frozen pizza sauce in the refrigerator overnight or put the freezer bags in warm water.
