A Fresh tomato pizza sauce is a little more work but defiantly pays off in the aspect of flavors and taste. Choose fresh ripe and firm tomatoes; if possible utilize fresh herbs or a good quality dried selection. Once prepared and tried you will most likely only use a fresh tomato pizza sauce.

Fresh tomato pizza sauce ingredients:
8 cl extra virgin olive oil
150 gr finely chopped onions
500 gr peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped fresh tomatoes
340 grams tomato paste
1 TBL spoons oregano
2 Tsp Basil, chopped
1 pinch Italian seasoning
1 bay leaf
Sea salt to taste / about 1 tablespoon
½ tsp pepper
Little sugar
2 tbsp Garlic finely chopped

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan, about 5 to 8 liters of size. Add onions and sauté over medium heat until translucent, not brown. Add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn heat down so all contents can simmer uncovered for about 60 minutes or until thick. Occasionally stir to prevent burning, once the fresh tomato pizza sauce is nice a smooth remove the bay leave, then season to taste. The sugar will eliminate the tartness of the tomato paste
