Nutty tomato pizza sauce

Pizza nutty sauce


This is similar to regular pasta/pizza sauce but here roasted nuts is been added. This sauce can be used as a tomato base on a pizza or pasta. In this sauce tomato puree is been simmered to thick consistency with dried Italian herbs, mint and spiced with paprika. Roasted chopped nuts is been added and it can also be blended to powder before adding it to the sauce.

I served this with Oats and Whole wheat flower pizza (Check for recipe by clicking here).

  • In a small sauce pan heat olive oil add in onions, as the onion becomes translucent and softens a bit.
