We have homemade pizza every week. The kids make their own pizzas so I get the night off cooking. By using homemade pizza sauce and a second portion of veggies on top of the pizza, it’s a healthy balanced meal – just don’t tell my kids that!

  • Tomato Puree 9 tubes £2.43
  • 125ml Lemon Juice 35p
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder 10p

How to Make Pizza Sauce

Open all the tins. This is honestly the hardest part! Empty the tomatoes into a large pan and put it on to boil.

Add the tomato puree into the pan.

Boil it for a good 15 minutes.

Blend the tomatoes until they are smooth.

Add the spices.

Ladle the pizza sauce into clean jam jars. Wipe the rims clean and secure the lids.

Boil in a hot water bath canner for 35 mins at boiling point, 100 degrees Celsius.

Makes 16 250ml jars
