Spaghetti Neapolitan is a classic Italian tomato pasta dish, but the sauce can be used for other purposes, including pizza! This simple, flavourful sauce really celebrates its classic Mediterranean ingredients, and it makes a deliciously Italian-tasting pizza base.
(To make 4-6 servings)
- 2 tins of good quality plum tomatoes
- A swig of olive oil
- 1 large white onion
- 2 cloves of crushed garlic
- 12 fresh basil leaves
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Step 1 – Sautee the onion in olive oil on a medium heat until it begins to turn translucent.
Step 2 – Add the garlic and cook for a further 1 – 2 minutes.
Step 3 – Add the tomatoes, fresh basil, and salt and pepper to taste. Then reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for about 15 – 20 minutes.
Step 4 – Your Neapolitan sauce should now be ready but taste it to ensure the seasoning is to your taste – if you find the sauce a tad bitter, adding a teaspoon of sugar will balance out the acidity.
Step 5 – Spread the sauce onto some pizza dough and top with mozzarella and other tasty toppings!
