I was at a Pizzeria that followed one of Peter Reinhart's, "American Pie" recipe exactly. I watched him make the sauce and I was impressed. I really liked the sauce.
Here is the recipe from page 142 of his "American pie" book.
Crushed Tomato Sauce
Makes 4 cups
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil (optional)
1 teaspoon dried oregano or 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil (optional)
1 tablespoon granulated garlic powder, or 5 cloves fresh garlic, minced or pressed
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice, or a combination
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
In a bowl, stir together all the ingredients, starting with 1/2 teaspoon salt and adding more to taste. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
The container in the photo below, used a #10 can of 7/11 crushed tomtatoes, so the added ingredients were multiplied by almost 4
