I hate to call this basic, because it is far from it! Slowly cooked over a low heat for 1 hour +, creates this amazingly rich, thick tomato sauce. I use this for pasta sauces and pizza toppings. It is really quick to make and you can make it in batch and then freeze it in portions, for a later date.

Why not try this on top of my Sweet Potato Pizza; 3 ingredient pizza base
