  • 1 28 Ounce Can whole Italian Tomatoes
  • Clove garlic finely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ Teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼-1/2 Teaspoon dried oregano to taste


  • Place a strainer over a large bowl and pour the tomatoes into it, separating the whole tomatoes from the juice. Working in the strainer, crush the tomatoes into small chunks by hand. Transfer the crushed tomatoes to a separate bowl. Stir spoonfuls of the strained tomato juice into the crushed tomatoes until you've reached the desired consistency for your sauce. Store the remaining tomato juice for another use.
  • Add the olive oil, garlic, salt and oregano to the sauce. Stir and adjust seasoning to taste.
  • Make a pizza!
