Domenic’s Detroit Style Pizza Sauce Recipe

This is a very simple Detroit pizza sauce recipe. Simply combine the ingredients, simmer at a low heat for at least 1 hour. This sauce is not baked along with the pizza and is spooned onto each slice afterwards, which means the sauce is ready when you like how it tastes.

Yields1 Serving
 28 oz peeled tomatoes (crushed or whole, 1 can)
 ½ tsp garlic powder
 1 tsp dried oregano
 1 tsp dried basil
 ½ tsp salt
 ½ tsp black pepper
 ½ tsp hot pepper flakes
1

Empty can of tomatoes into a saucepan.

2

If you're using whole tomatoes, use a potato masher, immersion blender or your hands to mash them up to your liking.

3

Add seasonings and mix them in well.

4

Cover the pan and let it simmer at a low heat for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour while stirring occasionally.

5

Taste test the sauce and take it off the heat when it's to your liking.

6

While your pizza is baking, get the sauce simmering again. It should be nice and hot when you spoon it on the finished pizza.
