If Pizza means getting one from Pizza Hut or Pizza Corner, then this one is not for you. Nothing compares to a good home made pizza, made with right ingredients, good pizza sauce and ofcourse, Love.
To make the best pizza you can, focus on three things: Fresh vegetables, good mozzarella cheese and good pizza sauce made with fresh tomatoes. What about the pizza base? It gets cooked anyway 😉 and if on wood-fired stone oven… nothing like it.
No pizza sauce recipe is written in stone. There are no hard and fast rules for making it as the ingredients and thier flavours differ from region to region. It is all about experimenting till the sauce tickles your taste buds right. Here is my current version of tomato sauce for pizza, which can also be used for making pasta.

Add chopped tomatoes. Then add all the other ingredients one by one.
Cook well and leave it to simmer for 40-50 minutes.
Stock up and store in your refrigerator for anytime use. For storage, remember to sterilise your glass bottle and dry it thoroughly before use.
If you want to use it right away, preferably make your own pizza dough though it may seem cumbersome and use fresh vegetables.
