Nice variation using pizza sauce... My daughter loves it in her dabba and her fellow mates also keep demanding for this recipe. So now whenever I make pizza sauce to make pizzas, I make it extra and put it in the deep-freezer to make this Indo-Italian fussion.

I get this often in my dabba and it stays fresh and nice even after 5 hours. So everytime i have pizza sauce left and do not want to put it on bread this is a great option..
