Step-by-Step Directions for Preparing Di Fara Pizza Sauce
Have you gathered all the ingredients? Great! Now let us get down to the business and make some great Di Fara pizza sauce!
Step 1: Preparing The Tomato Puree
Take out the tomatoes and wash them thoroughly. Remove any leaves. Then boil a pot of water. Carefully immerse the tomatoes in the boiling water. Boil for about 5 minutes so that the tomatoes are half boiled.
Strain the water and the tomatoes to cool down. Peel of the outer layer and gently crush it with a big steel spatula. Crush them in such a way that you can find small solid chunks in the puree. That’s the specialty of Di Fara pizza sauce. As you would bite into the pizza, you would also bite into small chunks of tanginess.
Step 2: Cooking The Garlic
Take a nonstick fry pan. Add oil to it. Turn up the flame to high heat. Heat the oil. Then, add the square-shaped minced garlic cloves to the oil. Now, reduce the flame to medium heat now.
Add the salt and the pepper. Keep stirring the garlic cloves for 2 to 3 minutes until you can smell the aroma of garlic. The garlic should turn a honey brown color. That’s when you remove it from the heat.
It may seem that the garlic is not properly fried. But, you cannot remove the garlic from the oil. So, it would get cooked to perfection as it cools in the oil.
The garlic might get over-fried if you heat it to a light brown color while putting the heat on. So better not to do that.
Step 3: Mix In Everything
In the bowl of tomato puree, immerse the hot olive oil with garlic. This should be done right away after removing the oil from the stove. Give the whole thing a good stir so that all the garlic and the oil are well mixed with the puree.
Then lastly, spread the fresh oregano over the tomato puree. Again give the whole thing a good stir. And your Di Fara pizza sauce is ready!
