Great New York Style Pizza Sauce Recipe

This pizza sauce recipe is based on the great recipe at Serious Eats.

Step 1: Collect Up Your Stuff

You'll need:

  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 medium cloves garlic (see below)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

For the garlic:

Step 2:

Put tomatoes and their juice into the food processor and pulse until pureed, about 6-10 pulses. The puree should not be completely smooth, but should have no chunks larger than 1/16 of an inch. Set tomatoes aside.

Step 3:

Combine butter and olive oil in medium saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until butter is melted. Add garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, and large pinch kosher salt and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant but not browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. 

Step 4:

Add tomatoes, onion quarters, and sugar. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by 1/2, about 1 hour.

Step 5:

Discard onions. Season to taste with kosher salt. Allow to cool and store in covered container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
