White Pizza Recipe

A simple garlic pizza, you can turn into anything else you like for toppings, this is just garlic, plain and simple.


The crust is crispy and so is the mozzarella, brown and with a garlicy flavor.

When ever possible homemade fresh dough is always the best choice!


Using 1 lb of pizza dough  homemade or store bought

Make a round pizza pan stretched out thinly in a pizza pan greased with crisco or lined with parchment paper so it won't stick or for very thick pizza use a greased deep cake pan

Garlic sauce:
2 tablespoons melted butter, 2 tablespoon olive oil.
2 cloves finely minced garlic
Sprinkles evenly with oregano, basil, parsley, salt and pepper if you love garlic add some garlic powder too.
For heat, add some cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to taste
Sprinkle evenly with Romano grating cheese.
Top generously with mozzarella shredded cheese or a mix of blended cheeses and bake in a preheated hot oven of 430 degrees and bake until browned and crisp on the bottom.

Optional: 1/2 cup of whole milk ricotta cheese mixed with 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, place random spoonfuls over the pizza before topping with mozzarella cheese.
Other options would be sliced tomatoes, mushrooms, pepperoni, shrimps, scallops, sliced onions, zucchini slices, ham and pineapple. You can get as creative as you like...

I love white pizza. I think white pizza and pizza margherita are the 2 simplest pizza to make and the hardest to make right. If you don't use the best ingredients they fail. Your white pizza sounds like you nailed the recipe.

I adore white pizza, just like I've become a convert to white chili. Don't get me wrong, I'll never pass up a traditional red sauced pizza or chili, but there's something uniquely special about the lighter versions.

I have never tried white pizza so it is now on my list. With garlic and a crispy crust it is even better.

Looks incredible Claudia. You know I have a serious weakness for pizza. This would make me grin from ear to ear.

The garlic sauce is a delicious topper! This is one that you can run to for flavor without being over loaded with too many toppings. Well done!

I love white pizza and have made it at home although with store bought dough. Brian wants a regular pizza with pepperoni so I usually make two personal size pizzas for us.
