I live in the north, and it if weren't for canned tomatoes- we'd only get to eat Shakshuka in the summer months. You can definitely use canned whole tomatoes, and they actually are easier if you don't like tomato peel. Canned tomatoes are a better option in the winter than the "ripe" versions found in grocery stores anyway.

Or passata (puree). Homemade or commercial.

Definitely! If fresh, ripe ones aren't available, that's the best alternative. And I'd say it depends on how saucy you want things—maybe start with only some of the juice and hold onto the rest to add in if it's looking dry.
