If you love pizza, and you love dip, then you are going fall in love with this pizza dip! This makes ALOT of dip - it serves at least 8 to 12. I made it this big so it resembles a pizza in size.
1. Quick Pizza Sauce - combine the following in a small saucepan: 1 1/2 cups tomato passata (tomato puree), 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste), 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, black pepper. Bring to simmer over medium heat then lower heat to low. Let simmer for 5 minutes until thickened. It will reduce to 1 cup. Use as per recipe directions.
No Cook Fast Pizza Sauce - combine the following in a bowl: 1/2 cup tomato paste, 1/2 cup tomato passata (tomato puree), 1 garlic clove (minced), 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp dried oregano. 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste) and black pepper. Mix until combined. Use as per recipe directions.
2. The purpose of the tasty cheese is to add salt and flavour to the cheesy topping because Mozzarella cheese does not have a strong flavour and also is low in salt.
3. I usually bake the Garlic Toast in the oven while I am preparing the dip (even while the oven is still coming to temperature). Then I remove it and rub with garlic, pile them all onto one baking tray and pop it back into the oven just before the dip is ready to rewarm the bread. It reheats very well and reinvigorates the garlic flavour.
