I make home made pizza alot - its fabulous, MUCH better than buying it and soooo much cheaper.

Anyway I usually use a store bought pasta sauce as a base and I like quite a bit of it too. Today for the first time I used tomato puree. It was really good. On the second pizza I added dried herbs to the sauce, even better.

What do you use as a tomato base for pizza?

I fry rosemary and garlic in olive oil until golden, and then add a tin of tomatoes (it will spit) and simmer to reduce it until thick.

I usually like tomato paste too but would like to try Griz's sounds nice. We don't eat them a lot but I like a good one If I do.

My favourite is Barkers Sun Dried Tomato, found in the chutney section on supermarket shelves. In fact, I've tried all sorts of chutneys as the sauce on my 2 ingredient pizza bases and they're all delicious. And my 2 ingredient pizza bases have 4 ingredients: I add salt and herbs to complement the toppings in addition to the flour and yoghurt.

Same as Griz, except I use oregano in place of rosemary.

Similar to Griz, but onion (finely chopped), garlic, oregano and tinned tomatoes

As usually these are a quick dinner I use a purchased pasta sauce. I do love just tom sauce, basil pesto swirls with grated feta and a little parmesan and cherry tom.... yum

I was using my homemade tomato sauce which has much less sugar content than purchased brands, and this made for a very hard-to-resist pizza but sometimes lately I put tomato paste on instead but with a little bit of added sugar to cut the acidity and strength of the flavour.

If I'm lazy I just use plain tomato paste with herbs sprinkled on top.

If I can be bothered, I make a raw tomato sauce with a drained can of tomatoes, salt, pepper, crushed/chopped garlic and some herbs. I blend it all up with my stick blender. No cooking required. If I want to make it a bit richer, I soak some sundried tomatoes in boiling water and blitz those up with the mixture.

Great minds think alike!

two must have ingredients for my pizzas are salami and anchovies. The kids arent keen on the anchovies but everyone loves salami. Sadly my 5 year old is still keen on the pineapple. The rest of us cant stand it.
