For a Single Batch (about 1 C (275g)):

For a Double Batch (about 2 c (545g)):

  • 2, 6oz (340g) Cans of Tomato Paste
  • 4 Large Cloves of Garlic chopped into a few chunks
  • 1 tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 4 tsp Oregano dried herb
  • 1/2 tsp Red Chili Flakes a pinch more for extra spicy
  • 6 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3/4 C (160g) Water plus more if needed for thinning


  • In a food processor (fitted with S blade) or blender, spoon in the tomato paste. Add the garlic, salt, oregano, chili flakes, and olive oil. Process for about 30 seconds. Scrape down sides of the bowl, and process again drizzling in all but about 2 Tbs of water. Process for another 30 seconds or until the sauce is smooth. Taste for salt and check for consistency. If a thinner sauce is desired add the remaining water or more if needed. It should be about as thick as mayo. The sauce is now ready to slather all over your pizza crust
