Tomato sauce

1
For the tomato sauce, place a heavy-based pan on a medium heat. Add the olive oil and once hot, add the onion, celery, carrot and parsley. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes, until the vegetables are very soft
2
Next, add the garlic, turn up heat up to full and cook for a few minutes, while stirring. Add the balsamic vinegar and reduce by half. Then add the tomatoes, tomato purée and oregano
3
Season well with salt and pepper, reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, uncovered until the sauce thickens and concentrates in flavour. Finish with the basil, check the seasoning and adjust accordingly before removing from the heat. Leave to to cool before using
4
Preheat the oven to 240˚C/gas mark 9. Prepare the pizza base and add a thin layer of the tomato sauce leaving a gap of 2-3cm at the crust. Arrange the olives, goat's cheese, mozzarella and roquito peppers evenly around the pizza
5
If you have access to a wood fired oven the pizza will cook in 3-4 minutes at 365˚C, otherwise place in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese is just bubbling and the base is crispy
6
Remove the pizza from the oven and finish with the baby spinach, oregano, a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve immediately
