My Go-To Pizza Sauce


  • 2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp fish sauce (anchovy sauce)
  • 3 cloves garlic – minced
  • 2 Tbs dry oregano
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes – more or less to taste
  • 1 quart of tomato sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp of sugar (this reduces the acidity or bitter taste)
  • 1/8 tsp of ground black pepper


  • Heat Olive Oil over medium to low heat in a saucepan.
  • Stir in the fish sauce and garlic and heat for about a minute, making sure not to brown the garlic.
  • Add the oregano and pepper flakes, stirring in.
  • Add the tomato sauce and bring to a simmer.
  • Season with salt, sugar, and black pepper.
  • Turn the heat to low and simmer until slightly thickened and the oil rises to top, stirring occasionally.

*This sauce is great pressure canned into half-pint jars or frozen if you want to make it in bigger batches.
