Best Pizza Sauce Recipe (No Cook, Authentic Italian Style)

pizza sauce in a spoon

The best and easiest Italian pizza sauce recipe.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 14 oz (400g) can of European tomatoes (preferably pomodoro pelato S.Marzano dell’Agro Sarnese-Nocerino D.O.P) THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENT-do not use inferior quality tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • a few pinches of dried oregano
  • 2 or 3 leaves of fresh Italian basil, torn into small pieces
  • (optional: a clove of fresh garlic, minced) my Italian family uses garlic, but it's only used on one type of pizza in Naples


  1. Pour the can of tomatoes into a bowl. If it is pomodorini or whole tomatoes, crush them with your hands, or you can roughly cut them with kitchen shears.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Taste for salt and add if needed. (Don't add a lot of sauce to the pizza dough; you don't want to drown it.)


Best quality ingredients are essential for this recipe. Do not subsitute the tomatoes.
