DIY Recipe: White Pizza Sauce

Recipes from The Kitchn

Sometimes you need a white sauce for pizza, since some toppings do better on a mild, creamy base. I like to top the white sauce with artichokes, roasted garlic, capers and Romano cheese.

White Parsley Pizza Sauce

makes 3/4 cup, enough for about 3 pizzas

1/2 cup whole milk ricotta
1/4 cup cream or half and half
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup Italian parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Whisk the ricotta and cream together until blended. Blend in a food chopper or mini food processor with olive oil, parsley, and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
