Fresh Tomato Basil Pizza Sauce

Pizza sauces are easy to make and so are pizzas. Truth unveiled yesterday. Yes, you heard made right. I made a pizza yesterday and that too from scratch. No store bought pizza base or pizza sauce. Made everything from scratch... High five to me.
I first thought of dedicating only one post for the whole episode but then the post went on and on.. so have put up the making of pizza sauce in this post and the pizza post is coming up.

Fresh tomatoes sauteed with basil leaves and reduced to a flavorful sauce

I didn't have mixed herbs in hand and hence threw in few basil leaves to get that beautiful flavor. The sauce was just perfect to be topped on a pizza and that is what I did!!! This makes 3 tbsps of pizza sauce. You increase the quantity as needed.

~*What U Need*~
Tomato(large) - 1
Garlic (crushed) - 2 cloves
Chopped Basil leaves - 1 tsp
Vinegar - 1/4 tsp
Sugar - 1/4 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Olive oil

How I Made it:

Make 2-3 slashes in the skin of the tomato. Bring water to a rolling boil. Place the tomato in water for 30 sec. Remove the tomato and peel off the skin. Chop the tomatoes finely and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add the finely chopped garlic and saute. Now add the chopped tomatoes and mix well. When half done, add the basil leaves, vinegar, sugar, pepper powder and salt. Cover and cook until the tomato is completely cooked and mashed up.
Allow to cool.

Fresh and flavorful homemade pizza sauce ready!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
