I just used regular marinara sauce on our pizza, although next time I'll definitely use more than I think it needs. I'll also put more cheese on my side of the pizza. When the crust rose it made both the sauce a cheese much thinner than I had anticipated. I will also note, however, that I used "highly active dry yeast" - maybe that's why my dough rose so much.
