The best pizza sauce recipe

02 Oct

This is a recipe I found on Recipezaar and it was posted by SAMS_Club and it is absolutely gorgeous.  I have adapted it slightly to make it more SW friendly.  Don’t be too concerned by the syn content of this sauce, a little goes a long way, I have made about 6 pretty large pizzas with this amount of sauce.  Plus it can be frozen!  You could also have the parmesan as a healthy extra but I haven’t done that here since we will need cheese for the actual pizza 🙂

The original recipe can be found here

Total Syn value = 7 1/2

Servings = Approx 6 large servings

Syns per serving = 1


  • Frylight – a good few squirts
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 9 1/2  tablespoons tomato puree – 4 1/2 syns
  • 13 tablespoons passata or 227g
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan – 3 syns  (Not necessary, but adds a little extra flavour)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweetner
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 small bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed


  • In a large pot, spray enough Frylight to cover the bottom and melt the butter using a medium heat. Add the onion, celery and garlic and saute until soft and transparent.
    • Add passata and tomato puree and stir until smooth.
    • Add remaining ingredients and bring to slow simmer.
    • Simmer for 30-60 minutes (or not at all depending on your taste and time frame).
    • Remove the bay leaf and spread the sauce on your prepared pizza dough.
