I mentioned last week that I might just make every food into a heart shape this week. And I’m sticking to it.
Remember when I first made the heart pizza with heart pepperoni?! I’ve made a version of that every year around Valentine’s Day for Eddie, and now for Max too because he loves pepperoni pizza.
Currently wondering if I could make heart-shaped sliders. Or tacos. Or smashed potatoes.
NOTHING IS SAFE FROM MY HEART COOKIE CUTTER.
This year, I decided that I could also make a white pizza for Emilia and myself. I mean, this babe will eat anything and gladly inhales pepperoni pizza, but I need someone on my cheesy white pizza side, right?! Someone to love it as much as I do.
After I made a bunch of pizza on New Year’s Eve, so many of you asked on Instagram stories for my best white pizza recipe.
The thing is that I looooove white pizza. I always have, in fact, growing up it was really the only pizza I’d eat! I didn’t want anything to do with tomato sauce. Not a thing.
And I have a few recipes here for white pizza versions that we really love. Probably too many recipes. Do I just go start a pizza blog?!
This white pizza with garlic sauce and herbs is SO good. It has a ton of flavor.
This other fancier white pizza with slow roasted cherry tomatoes is incredible, because it’s both savory and sweet. The tomatoes burst and get a little caramely in the oven.
Why I find it appropriate to post an additional white pizza recipe?! Probably because to me, they can be made in so many different ways. I often make a white pizza at home with mushrooms and balsamic or even shredded brussels and bacon.
This recipe here is a four cheese pizza that doesn’t require a homemade sauce, meaning it comes together fairly quickly! I like to make sure the crust tastes like garlic bread (um remember this garlic crust pizza?!) and then sprinkle it with crushed pepper flakes and lemon zest. It’s a take on the white pizza from Michigan and Trumbull at Federal Galley.
The result is to die for. It’s super cheesy with a hint of heat. There’s a little brightness from the lemon zest (don’t skip it!) and if you’re feeling it, you can drizzle some extra garlic oil on top.
As for cheeses, I like to go with freshly grated provolone, fresh mozzarella slices, scoops of fresh ricotta and a heavy handed sprinkle of parmesan. These four come together to create the perfect “pizza cheese” flavor.
And you obviously don’t have to shape your dough into a super cheesy (all puns intended) heart.
But I swear it tastes better than way.
