Copycat Papa John's Pizza Sauce

Hi everyone,
I'm blogging for the first time on my new computer, my other one died. This one is sooooo much faster, I guess the other one was dieing a slow death!
Any how I was going through some of my many emails (they really pile up when you can't get online) and my friend Ron Douglas author and chef of the Secret Recipe cook books sent me this recipe for Papa Johns Pizza sauce. So I wanted to share it with you.
Don't forget if you would like to order his book you can do so on my site just click on the cook book picture on the right of my blog.
Use this on your next homemade pizza or as a dipping sauce for
garlic bread.

1 (10 3/4-ounce) can of tomato puree
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon basil
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

Combine ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a
boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Makes 1 cup.
Here is a extra cooking tip for you.

Making Better Pizza Crusts:

Use high-gluten flour such as Pillsbury Bread Flour and Gold Medal
Better for Bread. Use 1 oz. dough portion or less per 1" pizza
diameter (for example, 7 oz. dough = 8" pizza). Store individual
raw dough portions dusted with flour in Ziploc bags in
refrigerator up to a week or in freezer up to a month. Bake on
pizza stone or pizza screen for crisper crust.
Well that's all for today.
