The best tomato sauce for pizza is to mash up some fresh San Marzano tomatoes but if you don’t have any there are alternative options that you can use!

Fresh tomatoes are best but if you don’t have those then tinned tomatoes are a great alternative option.¬†


If you have fresh ripe tomatoes then you can mash those up to the consistency you like and spread that tomato sauce on your pizza.

Add salt and herbs to taste.

I use tinned tomatoes to make my sauce.  I use them straight from the tin and mash them up a bit with some basil.

However, when I have more time sometimes I cook up a tomato sauce and I also use that sauce for other dishes.

This is what I do:

  • I add two tins of tomatoes to a chopper machine and chop up the tomatoes with some fresh basil to the consistency that I like. ¬†I also add some chopped garlic to the sauce.
  • I then pour that sauce into a pan and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • I let the sauce cool down and then spread on my pizza.
  • I freeze any leftovers or keep the sauce in the fridge for a few days.

Fresh tomatoes are the best!

    Tomato sauce is so easy to make! ¬†The fresh tomatoes chopped up are the best as the flavours are so ripe and fresh. ¬†They don’t need cooking.

    The tinned tomatoes don’t need to be cooked either. ¬† When I do simmer the sauce it is because I want to cook the chopped garlic into the sauce.

    I normally only simmer the sauce when I add other flavours to the tomatoes.
