Mix it with plain tomato juice to cut it? Or maybe spice it up with some hot sauce or Old Bay Seasoning?

Second to the bloody mary's;) I would add a pinch of sugar until you reach the acidity level you want. Sugar always tames tart:) Just a little at a time though;)

Can still be done to a sauce like in the pasta or pizza?

I did that once and absolutely ruined my tomatoes. Salt helps sour, but there is a limit.

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
