White Sauce Summer Pizza



First note I'd like to state is that I enjoy cooking and want to say I am rather good at it. I may have not gone to a culinary school but I've picked up the necessary life skills if you can call them that to make decent meals. As a student who went away to university, I didn't have my parents to cook meals for me when I came home but had to rely on myself (or takeout haha). I learnt how to buy groceries on a budget and cook meals for the week. 

Pizza is one of my favorite foods and healthy might I add if done right. It's fairly easy to make and I'm sharing my favorite white sauce veggie pizza recipe. 


Pizza Dough:

1/4 cup of olive oil
2 tbsp of honey
3-4 cup of flour
2 tbsp  of sugar
 1 cup of water
1 tbsp of salt
5 tsp of yeast

Mix together and let rise for two hours.

White Sauce:

1/2 cup of ricotta cheese
Whipping cream
Diced clove of garlic
Pinch of pink Himalayan salt
Pinch of black pepper

Toppings:

Pieces of brocoli
Sliced mushrooms
Sliced peppers
Sliced tomato
Leaves of sweet basil

Slowly add cream, one tablespoon at a time while whisking to the ricotta until you reach a smooth creamy consistency and resembles a sauce. Then add garlic and spices.

Final Steps:

Once the dough is ready, roll it out into the desired shape.
Instead of flour, toss cornmeal onto a pizza stone so the dough doesn't stick.
With a fork, gently poke holes throughout and then spread the sauce over leaving an inch spacing from the ends. Add your veggie toppings and voila it's ready for the oven.

Bake at 475 degrees F for 15 minutes or until the crust is lightly crisp and toppings are cooked. I made this pizza on a rainy day but if it was a gorgeous sunny day, I'd be putting the pizza on the barbecue.


I love topping my slices of pizza with spinach and then drizzling some balsamic vingar over it. You should try it and share what you think!

Tip: extra dough balls can be stored in the freezer and used at a later date.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment!

Enjoy!
