Grammy's New York Style Pizza Sauce

Angela (Grammy) Derby


This pizza recipe is the one Dad always made in my home, growing up. Of course, he didn't use a recipe, but I think I've figured it out pretty well. It tastes exactly like his.

  • 1Lightly sauté the minced garlic in olive oil, being careful not to burn the garlic (it will get bitter). Add the crushed tomatoes, salt, oregano & basil. Add the red pepper if you like it spicy.
  • 2Cook on low (bubbles should barely break the surface) for about 20 minutes or until oil comes to the top. Stir it occasionally so it doesn't burn on the bottom.
