Tomato sauce is a condiment made with tomatoes, and sometimes also ham, onions, basil, salt, oil, garlic, and various spices. A few tomatoes are broiled, skinned and mixed with a small amount of chopped ham, onion and some salt, oil, basil and other spices.

This mixture is boiled and passed through a sieve and a clove of garlic is added, but removed before the sauce is passed through the sieve.

Marinara sauce (from Italian alla marinara 'sailor style') is another term for a simple tomato sauce for pasta made without meat and usually including tomatoes, onions and herbs.

In Australia, New Zealand, India and Great Britain the term "tomato sauce" normally refers to the condiment otherwise known as tomato ketchup. In these countries, other sauces made with tomatoes are more usually referred to as pasta sauce etc., depending on their uses.

Some Italian Americans use the term "gravy" to refer to tomato sauce. In many cases they do not use the word "sauce" at all when talking about what is typically referred to as "tomato sauce," using the term "gravy" exclusively.


Tomato purée is a processed food product, usually consisting of only tomatoes, but can also be found in pre-seasoned form. It differs from tomato sauce or tomato paste in consistency.

To prepare tomato purée, ripe tomatoes are washed and the leaves and stem are removed. Some processors remove the skin of the tomato as well. This is then mashed or mechanically chopped to the desired consistency.

Tomato purée can be used in soups, stews, sauces, or any other dish where the tomato flavor is desired, but not the texture.


The tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a plant in the Solanaceae or nightshade family, native to South and Central America. It is an annual plant, typically growing to 1-3 m long, with a weakly woody stem that usually scrambles over other plants. The leaves are 10-25 cm long, pinnate, with 5-9 leaflets, each leaflet up to 8 cm long, with a serrated margin; both the stem and leaves are densely glandular-hairy. The flowers are 1-2 cm across, yellow, with five pointed lobes on the corolla; they are borne in a cyme of 3-12 together. The fruit is an edible, brightly coloured (usually red, from the pigment lycopene) berry, 1-2 cm diameter in wild plants, commonly much larger in cultivated forms.

 Pizza Information

Garlic is widely used in many forms of cooking for its strong flavour, which is considered to enhance many other flavours. Depending on the form of cooking and the desired result, the flavour is either mellowed or intense. It is often paired with onion and tomato. When eaten in quantity, garlic may be strongly evident in the diner's sweat the following day. The well-known phenomenon of "garlic breath" can be alleviated by eating fresh parsley and this is included in many garlic recipes. Because of its strong odor, garlic is sometimes called the "stinking rose".

Pizza breads are a group of staple foods prepared by baking, steaming, or frying dough consisting minimally of flour and water. Salt is necessary in most cases, and optionally a leavening agent is used. Some sorts of bread also contain spices (such as caraway seed) and grains (sesame, poppy seeds). Grains are also used for decoration purpose.
