Finely chop the garlic, remove the seeds from the red pepper, and thinly cut it into round slices.
Add a generous amount of olive oil to the pot. Then stir fry the anchovies, garlic, and the red pepper until you can smell the aroma of the garlic.
Once you can smell the aroma of the garlic, turn off the heat and add in the can of tomatoes and sugar. Then on low heat, break up the tomatoes and simmer.
Reduce the sauce for 15 minutes until creamy and thick and season with salt and pepper. If you have it, add in the basil now too. Once it's done, transfer to a bowl and let it cool.
Coat the top of a rolled out pizza base with sauce and add on your desired toppings and bake. Pizza Dough Recipe ID: 1355830.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to make a pizza sauce that would suit a pizza!
When you are simmering the sauce after adding in the tomatoes, be careful because the sauce might splash up! Simmer it carefully on a low heat setting! I recommend toppings like shimeji mushrooms, peppers, sausage, corn, onions and boiled eggs.
