Homemade Pizza/Pasta Sauce Recipe
Delicious and versatile tomato sauce perfect for the Italian delicacies like pizza and pasta.
- 4 - 5 ripe tomatoes
- 4 – 5 garlic cloves, roughly smashed
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar (optional)
- 2 tbsp readymade pasta/pizza sauce
- Salt and black pepper as per taste
- 2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
- Wash the tomato and pat them dry.
- Using a sharp knife make a small "x" on the stem area of each tomato. This allows the heat from the boiling water to enter the tomato and loosen the skin, making it very easy to peel.
- In a saucepan boil water with a teaspoon of salt.
- Add the tomatoes and cook them for a minute or till the skin of tomatoes start coming out.
- Meanwhile, keep a bowl filled with ice cold water ready next to the stove.
- Remove the tomatoes with a slotted spoon from the boiling water. Make sure not to bring any boiling water with the tomatoes.
- Transfer the tomatoes to the cold water. Peel the skin of the tomatoes.
