Quick Pizza Tomato Sauce

This easy sauce keeps well in the freezer. Freeze in an ice-cube tray and store in a zip lock bag.

Straight from the Freezer: Pizza Sauce

1 tbsp olive oil
3-4 gloves of garlic, minced
2 cans of tomato pieces (or chop up canned plum tomatoes)
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
½ – 1 tsp red chili pepper flakes
optional: 1-2 tsp dried oregano


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add garlic and sauté briefly.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and bring to the boil.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until thick. Stirring frequently to prevent the sauce from sticking to the base.
  5. If you prefer a smoother sauce you can process in a blender.

 To store

– In an airtight container the sauce keeps for about 1 week in the refrigerator.
– If you wish to store it longer: let the sauce cool. Spread in an ice cube tray. Once frozen transfer into a zip lock bag. Per pizza you will need about 6 ice cubes.
