Pizza Sauce

 If you love homemade pizzas then you must always need a good pizza sauce. Pizza sauces can be downright simple with just the flavour and seasonings from garlic and pepper and overly complicated with different spices, herbs and wine and so on. In my pizza sauce I have used anchovy fillets, which I read in  many placed gives a pack of flavours and caraway seeds for that intense earthy note. In my opinion if pizza sauce becomes overly intense in flavours it kind of messes the tastes of the toppings.

how to make Pizza Sauce recipe and preparation

1 can of peeled tomatoes
3 ripe tomatoes – chopped
5 cloves of garlic – paste
2-3 tbsp grated parmigiano reggiano
3-4 chopped fresh sweet basil leaves
2 green chillies – chopped (adjust according to your heat tolerance)
3 fillets of anchovies
1 tsp dry chilli flakes
½ tsp ground caraway seeds
1 tsp oregano
2 and ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper for the seasonings

Take a saucepan and add the olive oil and garlic paste and the anchovy fillets in it.
Slowly heat up the oil and sauté the garlic and anchovies for half a minute or until the garlic starts to become golden.
Immediately add the chopped up tomatoes to it.
Sprinkle some salt over them and cook the tomatoes until really really mushy.
When you see the oil separating add the canned tomatoes to them.
Add the fresh basil leaves, oregano, ground caraway seeds, salt and pepper and stir to mix.
Switch the flame to low and simmer the sauce for 15-20 minutes, or until you see the oil separating.
Add the grated parmigiano reggiano and chilli flakes.
Stir until the cheese dissolves with the sauce.
Taste and adjust the seasonings.
Switch off the flame and let the sauce come to room temperature.
You can use the sauce right away or you can keep it in an air tight container. Store inside the refrigerator and use within a month.
