Homemade Pizza Sauce From Fresh Tomatoes


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 5 cups of fresh tomatoes, seeded and cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • pinch of sugar


We don’t take the skins off our tomatoes, preferring to have all of that delicious fiber in our sauce. Instead, we use a hand blender to pulverize the skins in the last step.

Heat the olive oil to medium low in a medium pot.

Saute garlic gently for 3 or 4 minutes.

Add fresh tomatoes, salt, basil and oregano to pan and simmer slowly for 30 minutes.

Add sugar halfway through cooking, to taste.


Use a hand blender to mix. This will grind the tomato skins into the sauce.
