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.

1 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
2-3 tsp
fresh garlic, minced
1 can (28) oz
crushed tomatoes
1 tsp
1 tsp
dried oregano
1/2 tsp
dried basil
1/8 tsp
red pepper flakes (optional)


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.
3Use it immediately or store in the refrigerator or freezer.
