No Cook Tomato Sauce

Can't believe I forgot to post this one-- I've been making it all summer, and there are VERY few recipes that I make more than once. This is GREAT on homemade pizza, as well as pasta. It also takes just minutes to make.
1 large tin plain, chopped tomatoes
1 large clove garlic, peeled
1/4 teaspoon sea or kosher salt
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon tomato paste (puree in the UK)
2-3 teaspoons dry oregano (for pizza sauce, less for pasta)

1) Whiz everything together in a blender, food processor, or immersion blender. Stash in the refrigerator until ready to use-- up to 5 days. Use as is -no need to cook- spread away on pizza dough, then cover with cheese or slather onto hot pasta, toss and serve.
Makes just shy of 2 cups

A large tin tomatoes, could you perhaps be a bit more descriptive?

140 grams? http://www.deltafoods.sy/ProductsList.php?cat_id=1

Sorry about that. There are pretty much 2 common sizes that tinned tomatoes come in in the UK and the States: 14 oz (400 grams) or 28 oz (800 grams)-- roughly.
I was referring to the 28oz/800 gram size when I said, 'large' tin.

Thanks for pointing that out!
