Thermobexta’s Very Veggie Pizza/Pasta Sauce


This hidden vegetable sauce recipe for the Thermomix is a simple sauce that’s super versatile.

Having hidden veg makes it perfect for fussy children anyone!

Great to spread onto a pizza base or scrolls, or stir through pasta for some extra goodness. I also sometimes have it for breakfast with eggs, and Russ loves it for dinner with lamb chops.

This recipe also appears in my cookbook, Main Meals Made Easy, which you can check out here. It’s a book filled with dinner delights and is extremely popular amongst Thermomix owners.

Calories: 388kcal


  • 1 red onion quartered
  • 1 garlic clove 5g
  • 10 g olive oil
  • 400 g tin diced tomatoes
  • 120 g carrot roughly chopped
  • 100 g red capsicum roughly chopped
  • 80 g celery stalk roughly chopped
  • 50 g zucchini or broccoli
  • 1/2 tsp Herbamare* or 10g vegetable stock paste
  • 1 tsp honey or sugar


  • Place onion, garlic and oil in mixer bowl. Chop 3 seconds/speed 5/MC on. Scrape down bowl then saute 5 minutes/steaming temperature/speed 1/MC off.
  • Add tomatoes, carrot, capsicum, celery, zucchini, herbamare and honey. Chop 6 seconds/speed 6/MC on. Scrape down bowl.
  • Cook 15 minutes/steaming temperature/speed 2/MC off, basket on top of lid to prevent splatters.
  • Blitz 20 seconds/speed 8/MC on.


Allow to cool a little before use if using on pizzas.
Herbamare is a herb salt that adds a good flavour to dishes, more so than plain salt. I especially love to sprinkle it on vegetables before I roast them, yum! You can purchase it at the supermarket or health food store.
If you have a TM5 / TM6 and would like a large amount, it is possible to double this recipe – you will need to increase cooking time to 25-30 minutes.

Definitely a versatile sauce and I love the veggies in it. We had with pasta tonight. Next time I make it I will add extra garlic and I might reduce the celery, purely for texture reasons. I also added salt. I served it with olives and drizzled extra olive oil on it.

This had the thumbs up for pizza scrolls for school lunches & a pasta dish I did for dinner tonight. The kids are pretty fussy with pizza sauce so I’m very pleased! Thank you!

Just making a quick batch of this sauce for some quick, throw together, easy meals for my busy working days. So versatile, I will use it for srolls, pizza sauce and pasta sauce. Love knowing my kids are getting their vegies, even if they don’t know it 😉

Such a great, versatile sauce. I made it to go in the Hidden Veg scrolls and had heaps left over. We had it on our pizzas tonight and I will never buy store bought pizza sauce again. Love the smuggled vegies!

Super easy and result is delicous, this went through some pasta for a quick kids meal. I didn’t have Herbamere so I used a tsp of vege stock paste instead.
