White pizza sauce, often seen as an alternative to the classic tomato-based pizza sauce, offers a creamy, rich flavor profile that complements a variety of toppings. This sauce has its roots in Italian cuisine, where pizzas like Pizza Bianca forego the tomato in favor of simple ingredients like olive oil, garlic, and sometimes cheese. The evolution of white sauce on pizza has led to more elaborate versions incorporating cream, cheeses, and herbs, making it a versatile base for combinations like chicken alfredo, spinach and ricotta, or a medley of mushrooms.

  • In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant but not browned, to infuse the oil with garlic flavor.
  • Pour in the heavy cream and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently. Be careful not to let the cream boil over.
  • Reduce the heat to low and gradually add the grated Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses to the saucepan, stirring until the cheeses melt completely into the cream and the sauce is smooth.
  • Season with salt, ground black pepper, dried oregano, dried basil, and a pinch of nutmeg if using. Stir well to combine all the flavors.
  • Continue to simmer the sauce on low heat for another 2-3 minutes until it reaches a desirable consistency. It should be thick enough to spread on pizza dough without running.
  • Let the sauce cool slightly before spreading on your pizza dough. This will make it easier to work with and prevent the dough from becoming soggy.

Storage Tips

White pizza sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. If the sauce thickens too much upon cooling, gently reheat it, adding a splash of cream to thin it to the desired consistency.
