Cost: 5


  • 1 can whole peeled tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Blend the tomatoes into a chunky puree using a food processor or mill.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine 1 tablespoon of olive oil with 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • Once melted, add your minced garlic, oregano, and salt. If you want a bit of a spicy kick, add a dash of red pepper flakes.
  • Stir continuously for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes you've set aside, along with a tablespoon of sugar, directly to the butter mixture. Peel and slice the white onion in half and add it in there too.
  • Once it simmers, reduce the heat of your stovetop to the lowest setting. Leave it for about an hour and stir occasionally.
  • Discard the onion once the hour is up. Let it cool for a while before using it on your pizza.
