  • kgs Ripened Tomatoes ( I have used mix of fresh San marzano and Roma tomatoes)
  • Generous handful of Fresh Basil roughly torn
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh Oregano Leaves ( you may use 2teaspoon dried one)
  • 8-9 Garlic Cloves roughly crushed
  • 2 Onions medium sized, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Red Chili Flakes
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar/ White vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Clean, wash and wipe tomatoes well
  • Trim from the top, make a slit on each tomatoes and put them in large heavy bottom pan
  • Add 2 tablespoon of olive oil, mix. Cover and simmer for an hour. Stir few times in between
  • After an hour, cool it slightly and carefully take off the peels from the tomatoes. Mash it lightly
  • In another heavy bottom pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and 2 tablespoon of butter.
  • Add crushed garlic and fry for few seconds until it releases aroma.
  • Add chopped onions and fry until soft and pink
  • Add cooked tomatoes and mix well. Cook on high heat for 2-3 minutes
  • Add chili flakes, salt and pepper, oregano and mix well
  • Add roughly torn basil and mix
  • Cover and simmer for another 30 minutes.
  • Add sugar, vinegar and mix.
  • Cook for another 5 minutes.
  • If you prefer your sauce to be smooth, blend in blender.
  • Cool it completely.
  • Store it in a clean sterilised jar and refrigerate easily upto 2 weeks.


Always use spoon to scoop out the sauce from the container once stored. Do not use finger/hands to scoop or to lick
If you want to store it for longer duration, freeze the sauce in individual portions and use as per the need
You can increase or decrease the ratio of ingredients accordingly depending upon the amount of sauce you prefer to make either in bulk or in small quantity
If available, I would highly recommend using san marzano tomatoes for this recipe as they are best for pizza sauces
