Ingredients:  
1 can San Marzano tomatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup grated onions
3/4 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 cloves garlic (grated or minced)
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Directions:
Directions:
If your tomatoes are packed whole, pour them into a large bowl and using your hands break down the tomatoes so that they are chunky but not completely liquidy. This can also be done with an immersion stick blender by just pulsing it a few times. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the olive oil, grated onions, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes. Allow the oil to cook the ingredients for 3-4 minutes, stirring as necessary. Add the garlic and continue to cook for another minute.

Add the tomatoes from step one along with the sugar and salt. Turn the heat down to low-medium and allow the sauce to simmer for 30 minutes. Taste the sauce and adjust seasonings to preference. If you'd like a more concentrated tomato flavour, you can continue to simmer the sauce for an additional 15 minutes.

Use the sauce for pizzas immediately or allow to come to room temperature before storing in containers. Sauce can be refigerated for up to 1 week or forzen for up to 3 months.

Personal Notes:
This recipe can be made with fresh tomatoes when they are in season. You would need about 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 pounds of tomatoes. Mark an "x" on the bottom of each tomato using a sharp pairing knife. Add the tomatoes to boiling water for just 1 minute. Remove tomatoes carefully and peel. Continue from step one in recipe.
