I finished my Soul Pizza Sauce a couple of days ago and wanted to try something new. Since I liked the peanut butter from FunFoods, I decided to buy the pizza sauce as well from this brand. And this one can be doubled up as a pasta sauce too. I had to try this multi-tasker.

The sauce comes in a standard FunFoods plastic jar that is nothing very fancy. I have tried using it both ways, for a pizza as well for pasta. The sauce is inclined more on the tangy and spicy side as compared to Soul Pizza Sauce. Indian taste buds will love it. The pasta came out really nice. I didn’t have to add any extra salt or spices to the pasta.
For pizza, i found it a little more Indianized. It does not taste like an authentic Italian pizza sauce. But overall the pizzas tasted good. So, it does fare well both as pizza and pasta sauce.
