Can you use pizza sauce for pasta?

Sure, especially for kids. Pizza sauce and pasta sauce are made with primarily the same ingredients. A bit of brown sugar in the pizza sauce might tame it down a bit.

Can I sub out tomato sauce if I don’t have any?

Of course! About 3/4 cup of tomato paste to 1 cup of water and a bit of salt is one idea. You could also blend out a cup of stewed tomatoes until smooth, add a bit of salt to that as well.
