  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • A pinch of love


1. Sauté the Aromatics:

  • In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and sauté for about 3-4 minutes, or until it becomes translucent and soft.

  • Stir in the minced garlic and sauté for an additional 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Your kitchen will start to smell amazing!

2. Add Crushed Tomatoes:

  • Pour in the can of crushed tomatoes. Stir well to combine the sautéed aromatics with the tomatoes.

3. Season with Love:

  • This step is special. As you season your sauce with dried oregano, dried basil, sugar, salt, and pepper, add a pinch of love. Stir with care, infusing your sauce with positive energy and warmth.

4. Simmer and Blend:

  • Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes. This allows the flavors to meld together and the sauce to thicken slightly.

  • If you prefer a smoother sauce, use an immersion blender to puree it right in the saucepan. Alternatively, let it cool slightly and carefully transfer it to a blender or food processor to blend until smooth.

5. Taste and Adjust:

  • Taste your homemade pizza sauce and adjust the seasonings if needed. You can add more salt, pepper, or a touch of sugar to balance the flavors according to your preference.

6. Cool and Store:

  • Allow the sauce to cool to room temperature before using it on your pizza. You can also refrigerate any leftover sauce in an airtight container for up to a week.

Now, your homemade pizza sauce is ready to spread over your pizza dough, adding a rich and delicious layer of flavor. Don't forget to tell your loved ones that you stirred in a pinch of love to make it extra special. Enjoy your homemade pizza night!
