Pizza Sauce
Recipe type: Sauce
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-8+
This sauce is easy to make and has the nostalgic pizza parlor pizza sauce flavor that is missing from most store-bought varieties.
  • 28 oz can whole tomatoes or fresh tomatoes
  • 1 tsp sugar, to taste
  • 1 tsp salt, to taste
  • 1-2 Tbsp oregano, crushed, to taste
  • 2 tsp grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
  1. Mix all of the ingredients with a masher or hand-held blending device to mash up the tomatoes.
  2. I prefer leaving some chunks so that the sauce is not too runny.
  3. Cover the sauce with plastic wrap and let it chill overnight so that the flavors can marinate together.
  4. Bring it to room temperature for an hour or so before you will use it.
  5. (It can be used immediately if you do not have time to let it rest overnight but there won't be as much depth to the flavor.)
