I think it's up to you and your personal preferences. Pasta sauce is thicker than pizza sauce, but if you like a thick or chunky sauce, you would probably like it on pizza. As for spices, that's a personal preference thing too. Try garlic, onion powder, seasoned salt, black pepper, basil, etc...

I have not seen a lot of difference with the store bought products.  Some recipes are very similar too. 

Basically, pizza sauce (homemade) should have more evoo and pasta sauce has more broth.

With my recipes, there's a bit of a difference in the spice/herbs that I add.  I may cook the pizza sauce down until it's thicker, too.

If you are going to simmer your pasta sauce, I think the added liquid is something like 1/2 cup per 20 min and no more than 2 cups per pot. I saw some roasted red pepper broth in the store ... could have been roasted red pepper & tomato broth.  That sounds really yum vrs diced tomatoes (undrained). 

For a good seasoned pizza sauce, try using a pkt of dry spaghetti mix and using enough tomato sauce & tbsp evoo to blend & spread over pizza crust.  The evoo keeps the sauce from sogging the crust. 

I have tried the recipe using pkt dry spaghetti mix + mayo + parm cheese.  The toppings were artichokes, spinach, & black olive + moz cheese.  It was okay.

not sure, but im sure the difference is small and you could use one in place of the other if needed.
