Easy Pizza Sauce

By: Julie

Time:  10 min

Serves:  Enough sauce for 3 medium pizzas

I have a love affair with pizza but I’m getting picky in my old age.  If I have the time, I like to make it myself from scratch.  You can buy canned pizza sauce in the store and it will mimic anything you receive in a 2 for 1 pizza shack, or you can easily make something else that will taste fresh and delicious every time.  There are several ways to make pizza sauce but this one is easy, takes minutes, and is delicious.  The San Marzano tomatoes are important here, but if you can’t find them use plum tomatoes instead.

You Will Need:

  • 1 can of San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt (or regular table salt)
  • 1/4 tsp of oregano or basil
  • 1/4 tsp of chile flakes (optional)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic

Drain the tomatoes using a strainer.  I like to let them sit while the oven is preheating to make sure they are drained well – you don’t want watery sauce.  Once drained, toss all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.

Divide into thirds and freeze the 2 potions.  Spread the last portion on your pizza.  This is a generous portion, I like lots of sauce.  If you don’t, just use less and make 4 portions.

Top your pizza with your favorite ingredients, enjoy!
