ShareAs promised,here is the recipe for the Pizza Sauce I used in the Pizza recipe.
The tomatoes used in making the sauce need to be ripe and deep red in colour.
The sauce will be more than sufficient to spread over 3 large Pizzas.After you use it once,the sauce can be frozen and used when required.It will remain as fresh.
  • Ripe tomatoes-8 medium sized
  • Oregano-1tsp(easily available in the spices section of supermerkets)
  • Basil-1tsp
  • Salt-1tsp
  • Sugar-1/2tsp
  • Red chilli powder-1tsp
  • Chopped garlic-2tsp
  • Chopped bell peppers(capsicum)-2tbsp(optional ,but the peppers give a wonderful aroma to the sauce)
  • Oil-2tbsp(olive oil preferably)
Make small plus shaped slits on the rear end of each of the tomatoes.
Blanch them in boiling water for about 2 mins.
Immerse the tomatoes into cold water.
The peel of all the tomatoes can be easily removed now starting from the rear end where the slits where made.
Chop half of the tomatoes very finely and blend the other half to a puree in a blender.
Heat oil,add the chopped garlc.
When the garlic turns golden brown,add the bell peppers,salt,sugar and saute well.

Add the choopped tomatoes and the puree and bring to a boil.
Add the chilli powder and let it simmer with lid closed for about 15mins till the tomaotes are totally cooked.
Add the oregano and basil boil for a couple of minutes.
If the sauce is too thick add some water to get it to a spreadable consistancy.
Cool and use.
