I have tried so many different sauce recipes out there. From America's Test Kitchen to Emeril to Cooking Light. They all were missing something and I had to keep looking. Well, as of today, my search is over! This recipe is perfect in taste and consistency. I double the batch and freeze it or use as dip for breadsticks. It is truly as good as storebought. Oh, it's also great with 1/4 tsp onion powder.

I really liked this sauce......flavorful but not too spicey. I added some onion powder to the recipe as I happen to like onion powder. The sauce was just right as far as not too acidic tasting or not too sweet. My finished pizza got a lot of compliments especially on the sauce.

I don't think it's quite Papa John's, however it is very good, I didn't even think of my usual "this isn't right" thoughts about the sauce like always, it was very much I have to have more!
