Ingredients

Directions

  1. train the tomatoes: Open the can of tomatoes and use your hands or a spoon to crush the tomatoes into a large bowl. Alternatively, you can pulse the tomatoes a few times in a food processor or blender to achieve a chunky consistency.
  2. Simmer the sauce: Add the olive oil, salt, and pepper to the crushed tomatoes. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens slightly.
  3. Adjust flavors (optional): If you prefer a smoother sauce, use an immersion blender to further puree the tomatoes. Taste the sauce and adjust seasonings with additional salt, pepper, or a pinch of dried oregano, if desired.
  4. Tips:
  5. For a richer flavored sauce, you can add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar along with the olive oil.
  6. If you don't have San Marzano tomatoes, you can substitute with another high-quality canned tomato brand. However, San Marzano tomatoes will deliver the most authentic flavor.
  7. Leftover pizza sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
