I am updating the photo for the White Garlic Pizza. I make this pizza on a regular basis. It is quite tasty, especially on the Parmesan pizza dough. I tweaked the recipe to our liking. I love rosemary and sometimes I put it not only in the ricotta mix but I also will put it in the dough. We had this for New Year’s Eve and it was really delish and of course very simple. 😉 Everyone likes this pizza. ENJOY and Happy 2013!!
White Garlic Pizza Sauce Recipe
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil or Butter (your choice, I use butter)
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 cup half & half
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
you can add other herbs if you like
Mozzarella, slices or shredded (I have done it both ways. I generally shred the mozzarella)
Fresh basil, chopped
Additional toppings to your liking
In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the olive oil/butter. Add the onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic cloves and saute 30 sec to 1 minute. Add the flour and mix. Add the half&half and mix until the sauce thickens. Set aside.
In a medium bowl mix the ricotta, salt and pepper. If you want to add herbs such as thyme or oregano or rosemary – go for it! I usually add rosemary and thyme.
Roll out your dough. Add layer of the white sauce, followed by a layer of ricotta mixture. Add any additional toppings, mozzarella and basil.
Bake at 500 for 10-15 minutes.
