Basic Pizza Sauce

San Marzano tomatoes are traditionally used in Neapolitan pizza sauce. I use what ever I have on hand and it still turns out good.

2 Tab ex or virgin olive oil
5 garlic cloves, minced (can used pre-minced garlic)
1 (28oz) can San Marzano tomatoes
1/2 tsp kosher salt (do not substitute)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 small can tomato sauce (optional -to thicken a bit)

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Remove tomatoes from can and using a slotted spoon, reserving juices. Crush tomatoes. Stir tomatoes, juices, salt and oregano into garlic mixture; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer 30 minuets, stirring occasionally.

Just enough for "Pizza crust a la Cooks"
