Pizza Sauce

Step 1: You will need:
— fresh tomatoes
— salt
— ground black pepper
— dried oregano
— extra virgin olive oil

Step 2: Pour some boiling water on the tomatoes and keep them in the water for a few seconds.

Tip: You can use a can of crushed tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes.

Step 3: Remove the skins from the tomatoes.

Step 4: Finely chop the tomatoes and then beat them with a whisk.

Tip: Don’t use a blender for mixing. We don’t want our sauce to turn into mush — it should retain some texture.

Step 5: Add some salt.

Step 6: Season to taste with black pepper and dried oregano.

Step 7: Add some olive oil.

Step 8: Blend everything with a spoon to a smooth consistency.

Tip: You may also cook the sauce for a few minutes on a low heat. But we don’t cook our sauce because it will cook with the pizza.

Step 9: The pizza sauce is done!
