I was browsing Pinterest one day and I was looking through some recipes and found an interesting one for a “white sauce” pizza. So, I decided to give it a try but I ended up changing a good bit of the recipe to fit what my boyfriend and I like.
Pizza dough ingredients:
3 C all-purpose flour
1/2 Tsp salt
1 1/2 Tsp active dry yeast
1 C warm water
2 Tbsp olive oil
(You can use a store bought dough as well.)
Dash of cornmeal
White sauce ingredients:
1 roasted garlic head
1 can coconut milk (refrigerated)
1 Tsp basil
1 Tsp oregano
1 Tsp parsley
1 Tsp Cayenne pepper
1/4 C nutritional yeast
Salt & pepper to taste
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
Baby spinach (frozen is fine too)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Cut the top of your garlic head off and add a dash of olive oil onto it and wrap it in foil. Allow your garlic to roast for 40 minutes.
Place the water, olive oil, flour, salt, and yeast into your bread machine and choose the dough setting. Allow your dough to mix and rise in the machine. I’d definitely recommend this dough just because it’s nice and crunchy on the bottom but yet so fluffy.
While your dough is mixing go ahead and create your white sauce because it will need to set in the fridge for at least an hour. It needs to set this long, so that it isn’t extremely runny and makes your dough soggy.
To make the sauce you’ll need to remove the thick white coconut milk that sets at the top of the can when you refrigerate it. Squeeze your roasted garlic into the blender and add all of the spices and nutritional yeast.
Allow your sauce to sit for at least an hour. Drain your can of fire roasted tomatoes and wilt your spinach.
Preheat your oven to 475 F.
After your bread is finished roll it out onto a lightly floured surface. Shape your dough and put some cornmeal onto your pizza pan. Rub a dash of olive oil onto the dough. Then add your sauce and toppings.
Allow your pizza to cook for about 10-12 minutes and then enjoy!
