(Experiment 132) Pizza sauce

Looking for a super easy & tasty pizza sauce whenever you are making pizza? The challenge is that pizza sauce will only last 3-4 days in the fridge. From what I have read, beyond that point, some type of mold can begin its work in the sauce. The tricky part is that it’s not visible ( black spot) multiple days later, you still ate the mold.

So the idea is to make the sauce and freeze it so you can always have it on hand!

You need

  • Can of San Marzano whole tomatoes
  • ~1tsp sea salt
  • 5-7 fresh basil leaves minced
  • 1 minced garlic clove


  1. Open the can and throw everything in. Use a hand blender to chop everything down.
  2. WARNING: don’t overdo it as it will make the tomatoes watery. Just a couple of shots should take care of the tomatoes + mix everything together. You just don’t want huge chunks left.
  3. Taste and adjust salt to your taste

I used an old ice cube tray and just freeze the leftover, about 4 hours in the freezer does the job. Then throw them in a Ziploc bag. They will be good for 3 months. When you need sauce either take a couple of cubes out and let them thaw in the fridge overnight or blast them in the microwave for ~30 secs.
