We Want Pizza! But we don't exactly have the ingredients

My favourite game to play - store cupboard challenge/fridge forage. Pizza is the outcome, lets take a look at what we can work with.

Grabbing some tomatoes and basil from the garden, a couple of cloves of garlic and an onion from the table and we have the basis of a good sauce for our pizza! There is about a squeeze of tomato puree left in the tube, what better way to use that up!


10 tomatoes, a mixture of large and cherry

1 white onion

2 cloves of garlic

2 tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper

1 squeeze of tomato puree (it was almost 2 tbsp)

handful of basil leaves


Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and the bigger ones into quarters.

Peel and finely slice the garlic and onions.

Heat the oil in a frypan and add the garlic and onion. Cook until the onion starts to soften.

Throw in the tomatoes and just let them sweat and release their juices. They will start to steam themselves and break down beautifully into a rough sauce.

Add the tomato puree, season well with salt and pepper and leave to cook over a low heat until thick and saucy. You want it thicker than pasta sauce because you don't want soggy pizza. Especially if you are like our household and are using wraps.

Add in torn basil, stir and its ready to go! This was enough for covering 4 standard sized wraps. It was also mega easy.
