1
For the tomato sauce, place a heavy-based pan over 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
If you have access to a wood fired oven the pizza will cook in 3-4 minutes at 365˚C, otherwise place in the oven for 5-7 minutes until the cheese is just bubbling and the base is crispy
3
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
4
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. Remove from the heat and allow to cool before using
5
Preheat the oven to 240˚C/gas mark 9. Prepare the pizza base and add a thin layer of the tomato sauce leaving a 2-3cm gap around the edge. Arrange the olives and mozzarella evenly around the pizza
6
Remove the pizza from the oven and finish with the baby spinach, oregano, Parmesan shavings, egg, a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve immediately
