Super Deluxe Pizza Sauce

Super Deluxe Pizza Sauce
1 small onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 anchovy filets, minced
4 oz mushrooms, diced
1/4 cup olive oil
24 oz (can) peeled, whole plum tomatoes, cut up

In a large saucepan, saute the onions, mushrooms, garlic and anchovies, in olive oil, 5 minutes or until fragrant. Add tomatoes and stir. Cook 30-40 minutes or until thickened, salt and pepper to taste.

My thoughts:
This is a really, really tasty sauce. The anchovies just melt and add a nice depth to the flavor. It's a little bit time consuming, but if you are making your own pizza dough anyway, you have plenty of down time while you're waiting for it to rise.
Leftovers would be great on pasta.
