I do not personally feel is not too much trouble to have this on top of the stove on a really low simmer while you are putting the pizza dough together. As for the taste, I love how the garlic and spices really come though with this sauce. It is not so spicy, however, that your kids will not eat it. The taste is reminiscent of those old NY style pizza's I was accustomed to getting way back when.
