Homemade Tomato Sauce for Pasta & Pizza

Posted on

My homemade tomato sauce can be used for both pizza and pasta and might make you never purchase another jar of ready-made sauce. With sautéed onion, garlic and delicious heirloom tomatoes, you’ll have a sauce ready in about 15 minutes. Unlike the jarred sauces, this recipe is vegan, gluten-free and has zero preservatives, added sugar or questionable ingredients. I’ll make it ahead of a busy week and have both pasta and pizza nights squared away, making this a great recipe for busy professionals, students and/or moms! 🧡

Ingredients
  

  • 1 large white onion chopped
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 medium sized heirloom tomatoes chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup organic dry white wine
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Chop onion and add to a skillet over medium high heat. Drizzle in olive oil and stir well.
  • Cook the onions for about 5 minutes until the onion softens and becomes fragrant.
  • Add in minced garlic and stir.
  • In the meantime, chop the tomatoes. After about 3 minutes of the garlic and onion cooking, add in the tomatoes.
  • Stirring occasionally, cook until the tomatoes soften (about 5 minutes).
  • Add in the dried seasonings, tomato paste and wine and bring to a soft boil.
  • By now, all ingredients should start to resemble a sauce-y consistency. Turn off heat and let cool slightly before blending with a handheld immersion blender or blending in a traditional blender.
  • Use for pizza, pasta or store in the fridge for up to one week.
