2-in-1 Pizza Pasta Sauce is a version of Spicy Tomato Sauce ,quite similar to Arrabiata Sauce with slight variations. This spicy tomato sauce can be used for pizza as well as pasta , so named it as 2 in 1 Pizza Pasta Sauce. Making this sauce is simple , you need some good ripe sweet juicy tomatoes, onion, garlic, spices and herbs.
I don't claim this as authentic version because this recipe is tailored to suit a Indian Taste. Personally I don't like anything that is store bought . I prefer doing at this kind of simple sauces , jams and pickles at home. As ,I often feel the store bought ones are loaded with preservatives and loads of sugar and salt within it.
There are many processed food items like cheese , sauces like Soy Sauces which are inevitable and I use at home. But try to cut down these processed food usage as much as possible by using an healthy alternative.
I make variations to Pasta sauce but never with pizza sauce. Quite often I do this 2-in-1 pizza pasta sauce and store it in refrigerator in an airtight glass jar containers. The shelf life of this sauce is for about 15 days and more . Try making this as and when needed and use . Best thing about home made pizza and pasta sauce is , you'll be using the fresh sauce which tastes yummy and fingferlicking good.
As my friends says , this recipe sauce of mine is compulsory at their home for Pasta , Pizza and also for Idli , ROFL 🙂 🙂 . So I can even call this as a Multipurpose Sauce . Undoubtedly this Sauce is very delicious, you can use it however you want.
