Pizza Toast


Pizza sauce prepared at home, is my families favourite sauce ,my kids can eat this sauce by itself , without bread :))
 This sauce once prepared ,stores well for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. Making your life easier with hungry kids!!! Also its prepared with ingredients that you can add more vegetables, like broccoli, carrots to give it a more healthier side.

Method
1. Heat oil in a medium pan. As it heats add in carom seeds,onions, garlic and finely chopped green capsicum and sauté on medium heat for few minutes , as onions turn soft and transparent , add in seasoning salt,red chilli powder,add in veggie stock,allow mixture to sizzle for few minutes, next add in tomato puree. Allow sauce to simmer on medium heat for another 10 minutes.
Check for seasoning ,add oregano and sugar to offset the tart of the tomatoes. Lastly add in finely chopped basil leaves. The ready sauce stores well for about a week refrigerated.
2. To make pizza's roll out store bought pizza dough into 8 inch diameter and lay on a baking sheet. Spread 2 spoonfuls of cooled pizza sauce onto the surface ,add your favourite toppings, sprinkle shredded cheese on top and bake at 375 degrees for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, check to see and remove from oven as  pizza is done and cheese has melted.
Be creative in toppings, but do not overload the surface of the pizza.
Also for easy creations you can bake the pizza using white or brown bread, instead of using pizza dough.My kids love these pizza toast's and they are super easy to make, and quick too once you have the sauce ready.
