Simplicity is king in this make-ahead, fresh-tasting pizza sauce. Just four ingredients go into the food processor: garlic, canned tomatoes, olive oil, and salt. Use this recipe in our Classic Margherita Pizza or Skillet Pizza Diavola.


  • 1 clove garlic, peeled

  • 1 can (28 ounces) whole peeled tomatoes in juice

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • Kosher salt


  1. Pulse garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. Thoroughly drain tomatoes in a mesh sieve; discard juices. Transfer to processor, add oil and 3/4 teaspoon salt, and pulse until tomatoes break down into a slightly chunky sauce, 12 to 15 times. Sauce can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 5 days, or frozen up to 3 months.
