  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the finely chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add the minced garlic and sauté for an additional 30 seconds, or until fragrant.
  3. Pour in the crushed tomatoes, dried oregano, dried basil, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will allow the flavors to meld and the sauce to thicken.
  5. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings if needed. If you prefer a smoother sauce, you can use an immersion blender to blend it until smooth.
  6. Once the sauce has reached your desired consistency and flavor, remove it from the heat and let it cool slightly before using it as a delicious topping for your homemade pizzas!
