  5. Cook the tomatoes till they are mashy.
  6. Then, sprinkle some dried oregano or Italian seasoning and pepper powder.
  7. Add water as per the requirement because we need to make it saucy.
  8. Remove from the stove, and cool it down.
  9. Put it into the grinder and churn it into a fine paste.
  10. In the end, we need a thick tomato sauce, but just a bit thinner than ketchup.

For Tawa Pizza

  1. Take the dough and divide it into 2.
  2. Choose the pan according to the required size of the pizza.
  3. Sprinkle a small amount of flour on the kitchen counter, press the dough with the hands, and spread it out into a circle.
  4. It is not necessary to make the pizza perfectly round.
  5. Roll it out thin, using a rolling pin, just slightly thicker than a chapati.
  6. Using a knife, prick the dough all over.
  7. Heat the pan or tawa, and drizzle a few drops of oil.
  8. Now cook the pizza base on one side for around 2 mins, and keep the flame on medium.
  9. Add some oil to the top and turn it over and lower the heat.
  10. Apply the tomato sauce onto it and make sure to spread it to the edges.
  11. Sprinkle grated cheese on top and add all the toppings over the cheese.
  12. Now, cover the pan and cook on low heat until the cheese melts and the base is cooked correctly.
  13. Remove the pizza to a plate, and garnish with basil leaves and olive oil.
  14. Cut the pizza into 4 or 8 pieces and serve it hot.

You can garnish the pizza with more grated cheese, oregano, chilli flakes, and jalapenos also. You may have other side items like garlic bread or toast because it goes well with pizza.
