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
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
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
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
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
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
