1- 28oz. can of San Marzano whole peeled tomatoes.
1-1/2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon salt *see note below.
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic run through a garlic press
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and squeeze together by hand till it comes together as a sauce.
See our homemade pizza recipe and how we cook the sauce right on the raw pizza dough!
*Some salts have more sodium by weight in them so it depends on what salt you are using. When I use Diamond Krystal Kosher salt I use a tablespoon but if I’m using Morton Kosher salt I use less (1- 1/2 teaspoons).
*Do not use a blender because if the seeds are puréed they will make the sauce bitter.
