Marinara sauce pizza recipe
In addition to the tomato sauce is the most common pizza sauce. With onions and of garlic, it has something! It is more expressive than the traditional tomato sauce and can be used as an ingredient in itself. It is very simple and quick to prepare. Need 3 main ingredients and approx. 20 minutes to prepare.
Components for marinara sauce
You will need the following ingredients:
- Can of tomatoes (preferably cut, but if you have the whole, it can handle); Onion;
- Parsley (optional);
Prepare the ingredients for the sauce marinara
Pour the contents of the can through a sieve to separate the tomatoes from the tomato juice. Tomato juice set aside in a separate container. Half of the drained contents of the can blend to a smooth paste, and half leave in pieces. Thanks gravy will be interesting texture. If you do not have a blender, you just chop the tomato pieces.
Blend (or finely chop), onions and garlic. Garlic can pass through the smashed. Basil (optional and parsley), finely chop.
Preparing marinara sauce
Put 2-3 minutes on the hot oil. As soon as the onion and garlic will take on color, add the tomatoes and simmer covered for approx. 10 minutes. Then add the chopped basil (plus optional parsley) and simmer for 5 minutes. If the sauce was too thick, add tomato juice, which you prepared at the beginning.
Now you have two options:
Option 1 No more do, haircut sauce and apply on pizza. I like it when the sauce is not super smooth, but has the pieces whether tomato or onion.
Option 2 If you like smooth sauce, blend it. Then all the larger pieces of garlic or onions and tomatoes come to a smooth paste. If you do not have a blender, simply wipe through a sieve.
