Simple pizza sauce

The little girl and I both love to read.....we often go to a library nearby where we take ages trying to decide which books to take back home with us. On the last visit, LG picked up this book called Golgappu makes pizza which tells a story about a little boy who, with the help of his mother, makes pizzas for a pizza party with his friends. Soon after reading this book, she wanted to make pizza. So we did and here's the simple tomato based pizza sauce that we made.

What you need:
Tomato - 4 large, juicy ones
Onion - 1, chopped fine
Garlic - a few cloves
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Sugar - a little

Heat oil in a pan. On a low flame, saute the onions until pink. Crush the garlic slightly and stir it in. Add chopped tomatoes, cover and cook for 8-10 minutes on low flame. Crush the tomatoes with a ladle. Add salt, sugar and a cup of water. Let it simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
This is the sauce that we used on our pizza. We kept it simple and non-spicy because that's how my daughter prefers it. However, this can be spiced up with some chillies or chilli powder. You could also add your favorite herbs to make it more flavorful.

It is commendable that a child wants to read and more so that she thinks all that she reads can come by.I am sure that she was happy to see you make pizza sauce and she were around to help!

Golgappu makes Pizza? Such a cute name! :)

the sauce looks and sounds delicious! I often makes toaster pizzas (with leftover slices of bread) at home, but have always used store-bought sauces... Will definitely try this out next time!
