In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Add garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add tomatoes, pineapple, vinegar, molasses, brown sugar, tomato paste, mustard, paprika, oregano, chili powder and pepper; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 2 hours or until thickened. Let cool slightly.

In blender, puree sauce, in batches, until smooth. (Make-ahead: Let cool completely. Refrigerate in airtight containers for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 2 months.)
