I worked in a cute little pizza shop for almost four years. After 2 or 3 weeks, I was already tired of eating pizza for lunch - imagine by the end. I did not eat any for years after that, and even today (10 years later...) when Simon wants to go there, I hesitate. But it is always so good.
When we make it at home, sometimes we are simple (like last night - oregano leaves, olives, onions) and sometimes it is ingredient overload... It usually starts with too much bacon.
14oz tomato puree (half a large can), good quality
2 sundried tomatoes, minced
1 onion, finely minced
2 cloves garlic
1/2 red pepper, finely minced
red pepper flakes or chilies, to taste
Cook the onions in a bit of olive oil until translucent. Add garlic and red pepper, cook for a few minutes more. Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for 30 minutes, adding water to thin it out.
