Frequently Asked Questions

What is passata? Passata is simply puréed, and strained Italian tomatoes. Passata can also be labeled “tomato purée” or “strained tomatoes.”

Is passata and tomato purée the same thing? Yes.

Is passata and marinara the same thing? No. Marinara sauce is made by cooking crushed tomatoes along with fresh vegetables and herbs to create a seasoned sauce. Passata only contains 100% tomatoes and is not cooked. 

What are substitutes for passata? Tomato sauce or tomato paste thinned with water. You can also use whole crushed or diced Italian tomatoes puréed in a food processor and strained.

Can I use passata instead of canned (tinned) tomatoes? Yes, but you will not have any chunks of tomatoes because it is puréed and velvety smooth.

Can I use passata instead of tomato paste? Tomato paste is typically a double-concentrated tomato product with a much thicker consistency. Tomato passata can be used in different ratio, but it would lack the color and intense tomato flavor that a paste offers.

Can I use passata as pizza or pasta sauce? Yes. We love it for a smooth vibrant fresh tasting sauce on pizza.
