Home made Pizza Sauce from Scratch

Why should you hide your curves when you can flaunt it ??

Likewise cookware range have also gone way too modernised,colourful and stylish, that I do not see a reason why we lock away the cooking pots and pans in the cupboard. Gone are the day when we find only monotones colors in the cookware.The red and earthen tones in saucepans, woks & ceramics remind me of autumn.

Autumn Spice

How about pulling out the red’s from your stack and brighten up the season. And a warm Pizza baked from your oven to complement the chillness outside.Well I do intend to bake my pizza soon as its one of our family favourites.. The much deserved school term break is in force, we ( kids and me) are taking our day , just in its stride. I made my batch of Pizza Sauce ahead in time today and am just loving it. Its flavorsome and herb infused.

Add this stage add chopped Vine tomatoes,allow the whole thing to cook until the tomatoes get soft. Cover the pan with a lid while doing so as the tomatoes could splutter. Add tomato puree in between. This render’s the sauce the ting of colour. Some Sugar too , to counter the acidic flavour.
When the tomatoes are relatively soft, the skin begins to peel, turn off the flame and  Basil leaves along with the stalk and set it aside to cool.
Puree them all together, season with oregano ,salt and pepper as needed.
Store them away in an airtight container into the fridge. it will stay fresh for a week.
Alternatively if you are unsure whether you would finish the sauce in a week, store a portion in the freezer  for a later use. Defrost them and your pizza sauce is ready to go anytime.
If you are more concerned with the color of the sauce, you might as well reduce fresh tomatoes and add some tomatoes from the tin or increase the proportion of the concentrated tomato puree.
