This is the basic recipe of Pizza sauce. Use it to spread on Pizza base before adding toppings of your choice.
10 medium to large red tomatoes
1 bud garlic
3 to 4 teaspoons dry oregano
4 – 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt, pepper and sugar according to taste
Wash the tomatoes. Chop them finely. Keep aside.
Clean and Chop garlic.
Heat vegetable oil in a thick bottom steel wok. Add chopped garlic. Saute for 10 seconds on low flame.
Add tomatoes. Cover and cook till tomatoes are cooked. Mash them on the side of the wok with ladle.
Add salt and sugar. Keep sugar on higher side. The sauce should taste slightly sweet. Add pepper.
Cook till thick. Add oregano. Turn off the heat.
Once cooled, use for topping on pizzas.
My Notes – You may puree half the tomatoes and chop the rest. We love thick chunky sauce so we did not blend the tomatoes. Keep the sauce slightly thick and sweet. If the sauce is runny, it will make the pizza soggy. And yes, spread it on toasted and buttered bread….its YUM!
