Please note this recipe make enough sauce for a small to medium personal-sized pizza. If you want to make sauce to a large pizza, just double the recipe!
Technically I suppose this is not a true pesto because it does not have nuts and cheese in it but perhaps the culinary police will let it slide? This was the best tasting sauce for a pizza that I have had in forever. The sundried tomatoes are packed with flavour and only a few go a long way. The special equipment I am using here is a Braun Hand Blender & Chopper that I got for Christmas when I was in my late teens! I did not know how to cook but I was already collecting toys. You can make this in a food processor, a blender or even by hand but I recommended getting a little help from one of your kitchen appliances.
Remember that roasted garlic I made the other day? I put it all in my little chopper with six chopped sundried tomatoes and some of the oil from the bottle, why let it go to waste? Let’s bump up that beautiful flavour.
I attached my hand blender to the chopper and let it do all the hard work. In seconds, pizza sauce!
Next I rolled out my pizza dough. This is the dough I made the other day for my barbecued chicken buns. Even though the recipe was fatally flawed, to give it credit, it made a ton of dough which unfortunately I have now eaten the entire batch of dough.
Cook the dough either in a pan or on a grill for three minutes per side, put on your toppings and then broil just long enough to melt the cheese. My toppings were carmelized onions, mushrooms and goat cheese.
Super easy sauce! You get that slow-cooked flavour it mere seconds. This is one of the best pizzas I have ever tasted and I made it all by myself! How exciting is that?
