Pizza Sauce

You can't have pizza without pizza sauce...well, actually I am not a huge fan of tomato based pizza sauce and could do without at times. But my quest for a good homemade pizza includes a good pizza sauce! Here is one that I adapted from a few different places. The sauce is easy to make and has a good flavor. Since this one doesn't need to be cooked, it's also pretty quick.

1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
6 oz warm water (110 degrees)
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp honey
3/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp dried red pepper flakes (I used more since we like it hotter)
salt to taste

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Sauce should sit for at least 30 minutes to blend flavors. Spread over pizza crust and add desired toppings.
