Homemade Pizza Sauce

  ​Fred’s Easy hand made Pizza Sauce

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.

    1. We learned on our trip to Italy that herbs are not typically added to the sauce, that is actually more an American thing. We loved the purity of a true Naples style Italian pizza and that’s what this recipe is all about. A true pizza sauce is just the best tomatoes you can get your hands on, a good salt, fresh ground black pepper corns, a hint of fresh garlic and really good extra virgin olive oil.
