Basic Pizza Sauce

Basic Pizza Sauce

I recommend this recipe for it’s simplicity and great taste.

from America’s Test Kitchen, Episode: Pizza Party


This recipe makes enough for four pan pizzas, so you will need only half when making Pepperoni Pan Pizza (see related recipe). Freeze the remaining sauce for future pizza making.

Makes 2 2/3 cups

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic , minced
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes

Cook oil and garlic in medium saucepan over low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, increase heat to medium, and cook until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
