Does a typical east-coast independent neighborhood pizza place do anything to its tomato sauce (or other ingredients) between the can and the pie?

When at a basic Italian (or Greek) restaurant / pizza joint anywhere from MA to DC, are the ingredients completely commodity - dough, sauce, etc, from Sysco or another distributor? Or is anything customized at the locations or made from fresh ingredients?
I realize there are more 'craft' places (I love Louie and Ernie
's in the Bronx) where they make their own dough and sauce, but I'm talking about the typical strip-mall or corner-store locations that sell by the slice.
