Rich and Creamy White Garlic Pizza Sauce

Sometimes we get tired of the same old thing, and tomato pizza, as good as it can be, can also get old. If you are craving pizza, but want something a little different, this white garlic pizza sauce is the one for you. It is great with sausage, chicken, artichoke hearts, and a number of other toppings. It also does double duty to make a nice Alfredo-type sauce for pasta.

Combine it with a few tablespoons of marinara sauce to create a “rosa” sauce for pizza or pasta, too. This is truly an easy, versatile sauce that’s not just the same old thing. Try it – you will be sure to include it in your regular recipe rotation. It is mellow and delicious, without being bland, and the garlic adds a little zing.

A surprising amount of people have enjoyed tomato sauce-topped pizza over a hundred times but never, ever tried a white pizza, and that is a real shame because this can be a lovely treat. As you would expect, this type of sauce means you can add pretty much any toppings and they will complement the pizza.

If you want to use fresh tomatoes to top a pizza you might not want to use a rich-tasting tomato sauce too. Tomatoes are great but there is such a thing as too much. For that reason, if you want to use tomatoes as a topping then try this white sauce because it is so tasty. The sauce is a mixture of butter, milk and cheese, and there is also some garlic in there. If you are in the mood for something new, do try this tasty and creamy white pizza sauce.
