Ingredients: 4-5 medium field-grown ripe tomatoes, chopped; 3 garlic cloves, pressed; 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil; 1 tbsp. chopped green onions; 1 tbsp. sweet paprika; 1 big brunch of fresh basil (about 1/2 cup of chopped basil leaves), 2 teaspoons sugar; 1 teaspoon salt.
Recipe: Heat the olive oil in a large heavy pan and saute the garlic for 2 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes, green onions, sugar and salt to the pan, and saute on medium heat until soft. Add the paprika and cook the pizza sauce for 5 minutes more. Add the chopped basil and stir well. After 1 minute remove from heat and set aside, or use immediately over your rolled pizza dough.
As you see, this pizza recipe uses only a handful of fresh ingredients and requires very little effort. This is the irony with cooking - many people think that complicated recipes and many ingredients and spices make good food.
This pizza sauce was the tastiest I have ever made, and you can trust me on that. I am a chef who has made many, many pizzas for the last 20 years. Below is the finish delicacy - pizza topped with roasted eggplant, dried sopressata and calamata olives.
