Pepperoni Pizza with Roasted Tomato Sauce

My favorite new trick for making sauce for pizza is to skip cooking it. While some sauces are wonderful when their rich flavor has been developed over time, I find that keeping the garlic and basil in this sauce raw, just until they go into the oven, yields a fresh-tasting, incredibly flavorful pizza. The roasted tomatoes bring a welcome sweetness that compliments the spicy pepperoni nicely.

  • ingredients
  • flour for rolling and for pan Pantry
  • 1 cup canned roasted, crushed tomatoes (preferably the “fire-roasted” variety) $1.75 for a 14-oz. can
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped Pantry
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves, finely chopped, plus more for garnish $1 for a bunch
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 1/2 recipe pizza dough $1.50
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese $3.50 for 8 oz.
  • about 12 slices pepperoni $3.50 for 6 oz.
Total Cost of Ingredients $12.25


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly flour a baking sheet or pizza pan and set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together the crushed tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, basil salt and pepper. Set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the pizza dough out into desired shape (I made mine oblong). Top with the sauce, cheese, pepperoni and more basil.

Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until crust is golden-brown and cheese is very bubbly.

Cut into wedges and serve.

Serves 2-3.
