Basic Pizza Sauce

Kate Ramos


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 (28-oz) can crushed tomatoes, with juices
  • 2 tsp dried oregano


  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When oil shimmers, add garlic and cook until fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Add tomato paste, stir to incorporate, and cook until raw flavor is gone about 4 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes and oregano and stir to combine.
  2. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally until thickened, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool before using to top pizza.
