Method: 

For the pizza sauce, in a medium nonreactive saucepan, heat oil, garlic and hot pepper flakes over very low heat, allowing the flavors to infuse the oil, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste and oregano. Cover and simmer 30 to 45 minutes, until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Taste and add sugar, salt and seasonings to taste. Refrigerate sauce and use within five days or freeze for up to three months.

For the pizza, preheat oven to 450F or 500F or grill to medium-high heat. If using a pizza stone, place on oven rack or grill while preheating.

Spread 1/4 cup of pizza sauce over each piece of naan. Sprinkle with garlic and red pepper flakes. Break apart cheese slices and arrange over each pizza. Sprinkle with sausage and arrange red pepper slices over each pizza.

Bake or grill pizzas 5 to 10 minutes directly on the pizza stone, until crust is crisp and cheese is bubbly. Remove pizzas and sprinkle with oregano and/or hot chili peppers.
