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...
