Homemade Pizza Sauce

We are having homemade pizza every Friday night this month. I wanted a tasty sauce for our pizzas and I searched for one and tweaked it to make it a little more spicy for my hubby.

Homemade Pizza Sauce

1 15 oz can tomato sauce
3 Tbsp water
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp basil (when in season, use fresh)
1/8 tsp thyme
1/8 tsp garlic powder
2 shakes red pepper flakes

Combine all ingredients in sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Let it cool before using on top of the pizza. I think that it would also make a great dip for bread sticks. I am going to have to try that soon.
