This tomato sauce is super easy and quick to prepare. It tastes great as a base for pizza or pasta, or simply served with some crusty bread.

Here’s what you need to make Easy Tomato Sauce:

  • Olive oil

  • Can of peeled plum tomatoes

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, peeled

  • 400 g (1 can) peeled plum tomatoes

  • 2 tsp oregano

  • 1 tsp granulated sugar

  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 6 leaves fresh basil


  • Slightly heat olive oil in a medium-sized pot, add whole clove of garlic and fry for about 15 seconds over medium-low heat until aroma releases.
  • Add peeled tomatoes from the can, oregano, sugar, salt and combine. Simmer for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Add fresh basil and remove from the heat.
  • Blend sauce using a hand blender or in the food processor until smooth.
  • Spread over the pizza crust or serve with your favourite pasta. Enjoy!


  • I recommend to prepare tomato sauce in a large- or medium-sized pot as it’s bubbling strongly.
  • You can keep tomato sauce refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week or frozen up to 6 months.
