Michael, that means that sauce made from fresh tomatoes instead of can tomatoes makes the best sauce IMO (In my opinion). It has the taste of freshness which is lost when it's canned. Often times, I like to mix 1/2 fresh tomatoes and 1/2 can tomatoes to get that fresh taste.
although many members here often shy away from or frown upon "cooking" sauce. If you don't cook it too much, I think it is okay, but cooking tomatoes too long can lose the freshness as well and make tomatoes taste acidic. Of course, you have to cook it just enough to peel the skins, but I usually stop after that. But there are many different ways to make good sauce, cooked or uncooked. As long as you are happy with the end product that's all that matters.
I hope you get some rest, and I am looking forward to your results. I hope it's what I want to hear.
BTW, the pizza looks very good and you look like you are proud of it.
