Learn how to make homemade pizza sauce with this easy recipe! Use good quality unsalted canned tomatoes here, ideally San Marzano if you can find them.


  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes (San Marzano, preferably)*
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano


  • Place the tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt, and oregano in a food processor and blend until combined.
  • Spread ½ heaping cup of the pizza sauce onto the dough, top with desired toppings, and bake for 10 to12 minutes in a 500°F oven, or until the crust is browned.
  • Makes enough sauce for about 4 pizzas. Store any extra sauce in the fridge or freezer.


*Note: if you'd like a thicker sauce, you can drain the tomatoes before placing in the food processor.
