Recipe For Pizza Sauce

I think as a parent you always need quick fix options for your children. Thankfully I don’t have to worry about that, but my sister is a stay at home mum with two very busy children. Unlike a lot of my friends who do not work, my sister does not have a full time maid. She is in charge of house cleaning, shopping and cooking. And cooking is the one task I know she does not relish. A few weeks ago I decided to send Sasha, my 7 year old niece, a recipe on a postcard. I wondered at the time of posting how many people would see the recipe and write it down before the postcard got delivered to Sasha? I think this recipe for pizza sauce should be the next one I share with her. It takes no effort to make and if you wanted to, you could sieve the tomatoes through a chinois after blending to get a genuine passata. However I like the texture of the seeds so I don’t worry to do that. I also like the sharp bite of chillies but if you wanted to, you could leave that ingredient out. I used this simple pizza sauce recipe to make some small pizzas using my home made pizza dough, as well as two nice sized pizzas for lunch. To make the mini pizzas I used 10g of the pizza dough and flattened them with my hand. I then placed 15mls of the pizza sauce on top and baked them for 12 minutes at 200° Celsius. There was a smidgen left over and so I added that to the chicken livers that I cooked for dinner the next evening.

Have you ever posted a recipe on a post card?

  8. This is like a letter from Downton Abbey “….my sister does not have a full time maid”. I don’t know anyone who has!
