  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion finely diced, optional
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano optional


  • Add all ingredients to a 3-quart saucepan set over medium-low heat. Stir well to combine and allow to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring often to prevent the pizza sauce from sticking. 
  • Remove from heat and use immediately or allow to cool before storing in an airtight container for up to one week.



If your pizza sauce seems a bit chunky, you can use an immersion blender or regular blender to make it rich and creamy.
