What is New York Pizza?

I think it has to do with the level of grease floating on the top. The cheese absolutely has to be whole milk, and it has to be cooked such that the fat separates from the whey. That's NY pizza to me. Foldability, tangy (not tart!) sauce, those are of course important too.

Good way to doctor up jar spaghetti sauce?

The easiest thing ever:
Slice an eggplant the long way, rub olive oil on the cut side, roast cut side down until tender (~40'@ 400F). Scoop out cooked eggplant, add to simmering sauce. Instantly thickens and flavors a jar sauce!
