Uncooked Tomato Sauce
- Active Time 10m
- Total Time 10m
Makes about 1 1/2 cups (Serves 12)
This simple sauce is the traditional topping on a Neapolitan pizza and suits a wide range of pizza preparations. It is light on the palate and fulfills its role as an undernote to pizza, allowing the additional toppings to stand out. If you are using canned tomatoes, look for the sweetest ones you can find. Taste them out of the can and, if they are a bit too acidic, add a pinch of sugar.
- 8 ripe plum (Roma) tomatoes or 1 can (16 ounces) plum (Roma) tomatoes with their juices
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
Fit a food mill with the coarse or medium blade and place over a small mixing bowl. Pass the tomatoes through the mill into the bowl. Alternatively, use a food processor and peel the fresh tomatoes, if using. Place the fresh or canned tomatoes in a food processor fitted with the metal blade and pulse to form a coarse purée. Add the olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Use immediately, or transfer to a tightly covered container and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Makes about 1 1/2 cups, enough for six 9-inch pizzas.
