Notes

If you like the fresh pizza sauce, then make use of fresh tomatoes all through. You have to first blend a large number of tomatoes and then boil until the what is greatly reduced. While boiling to reduce the water content, you need to stir intermittently to prevent the tomatoes from getting burnt. Making fresh pizza sauce with fresh tomatoes takes time, uses more cooking fuel, and requires many fresh tomatoes.
