Homemade Tomato Sauce

This recipe goes great with my homemade grilled pizzas or any other dish you need a tomato sauce for. I don’t like a runny pizza sauce, so cooking this recipe until the liquid evaporates allows for a thicker sauce, which is great for pizza.


28oz can of your favorite whole peeled tomatoes

2 tablespoons olive oil

Half of a brown onion, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, minced

Red pepper flakes

Dried basil leaves


1. Heat olive oil in pan and toss in the onions. Cook until translucent and soft, about 5 minutes.

2. Add in garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook until fragrant, about a minute. Make sure you don’t burn your garlic. There’s nothing worse than bitter, burnt garlic.

3. Add in the can of tomatoes and stir everything together. With a spoon or potato masher, crush the tomatoes.

4. Stir in the basil.

5. Continue to cook on medium heat until there is no liquid left, and you have a nice chunky sauce left.
