I am looking for a good pizza sauces recipes. Both marinara and other types of sauces that are good on pizza. Maybe pesto, alfredo, garlic, etc... I really like gourmet pizza but have no luck making my own sauce and it's about $20 a pizza to have it delivered. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I tried to use jarred expensive pasta sauce that seemed to be thick for pizza sauce. Didn't work. Was too watery. Should have simmered it on the stove to reduce it substantially. first.

1 small can tomato paste

1 small can tomato sauce

1 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. garlic powder

Shake or two of fennel seeds. Try it like this, and doctor it up as you see fit

stir all together over low heat until just mixed, and spread on pizza dough. I barely heat it just stir it enough to mix it up.
