Mike’s secret sauce recipe
Heat the oil in a small pan and fry off the onion and garlic until soft
Add the tin of tomatoes and tomato puree and gradually bring to a gentle simmer.
Add the basil, oregano, salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes
With a stick blender or food processor blitz the sauce to a nice smooth sauce
Refrigerate and use to top your pizza dough
If you prefer a spicy sauce you could add 1 red chilli diced to the recipe and add it to the onion cooking stage or a teaspoon of harissa paste
