Basic Tomato Sauce

Alright, this recipe, if you can even call it that, is so easy to make. It works great by itself, for pizza’s and pasta and stuff, but also is a great base if you want to pimp up your sauce a little. You can add whatever spices, vegetables and/or meat you like, that way this recipe can serve as a base for many, many, many variations.Experiment with it a bit and find out what you like!



  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • optional: 1 small bunch of basil, leaves picked and torn up
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil


  • Put a pot, big enough to fit the sauce in, on your stove and pour in some olive oil
  • Once the oil is heated up a little, add your garlic and fry it of a little to let it soften up
  • If the garlic is softened, add the tin of tomatoes
  • Bring the sauce to the boil. Once boiled, turn the heat down and let it simmer for 5 minutes
  • Add the torn basil and season with salt and pepper (don’t go easy on the salt, tomatoes need salt!)
  • Ready to go!
