Description

Looking for an easy pizza sauce recipe? This one gets rave reviews: it uses only 5 ingredients and takes only 5 minutes in a blender!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 15 ounces crushed fire roasted tomatoes*
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic (1/2 medium)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Scant 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Cut the garlic into a few rough pieces (no need to mince it).
  2. Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until fully combined. (This pizza sauce is Italian-style, which has a slightly runnier texture than American style pizza sauce. See the video for the desired texture!) Store refrigerated for 1 week or frozen up to 3 months.

Notes

*If at all possible, try to find fire roasted tomatoes! They’re available at many mainstream groceries these days and have a mellow, sweet flavor. If you absolutely cannot find them, use a high quality brand of crushed tomatoes.
