White pizza

The Ultimate White Pizza Sauce

Good white pizza doesn't get enough love. If you've ever tried making it at home with a jar of white sauce, you know that unpleasant texture! It's nothing compared to what a good pizza place uses. Packed with garlic, this recipe elevates the flavors and texture beyond anything you can get in a jar.

  • Slowly whisk in milk and continue whisking until smooth and bubbly and desired consistency is achieved, about 2 minutes (remember - sauce will thicken as it cools). Add salt. Turn off burner then add parmesan cheese, whisking until incorporated. If sauce thickens too much, whisk in more milk 1 tbsp at a time.
