Help...Need a good pizza sauce recipe

Hi everyone, I am kinda new to Chow and I absolutely love to read all the threads. I have gotten quite a bit information and tidbits to help me out in my kitchen. Lately I have been baking bread by the dozens and just giving it away for others to enjoy. I made homemade pizza yesterday with a homemade sauce recipe I found online and it just didn't taste authentic. I have a pizza stone and a pizza peel so I had no trouble getting the pizza in and out of the oven. I preheated my oven for 45 minutes to an hour also. The pizza was beautiful looking but the taste was no where near what I expect pizza to taste like. I do so enjoy the baking part and saving all kinds of money buy making my own but the taste just isn't there. I am hoping you will share yours?

For my sauce I slow simmered for 2 hours:

1 can crushed tomato
1 can tomato paste
1/4 red wine
1 tbs minced onion
1 tsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Am I missing something? It just tasted bland to me and not like pizza sauce.
