Steam in a pot with olive oil, garlic, and the chopped chili pepper, for one minute. Add the remaining chopped tomatoes, sugar, paprika, basil, tomato paste, vinegar, and oregano. Cook on low flame for about 30 minutes.
Remove the pot from the flame and blend the mixture with an immersion blender until the sauce is smooth. Add salt and ground pepper to taste.
