Hi all,<br><br>
I make an awesome pizza crust that we all love. Unfortunatly, ds seems to be reacting to tomato via breastmilk, just like big sis did <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I love pizza! A couple of the pizza places around here have a garlic white sauce instead of tomato and I was wondering if anyone at a recipe for that?<br><br>
Thanks!

We just mix fresh garlic with mayo, we do it to taste, which means lots of garlic<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
It makes a great sauce for veggie pizza.<br>
Also, we have just olive oil and garlic, sometimes we chop fresh herbs into it.<br>
We like to experiment, have fun.<br>
I'm looking forward to the replys, I'm always looking for new ideas for pizza.

I don't have a white sauce recipe (I've used jarred alfredo in the past - I'm sure you could just make some alfredo sauce?), but I wanted to suggest you could try a pesto topping.<br><br>
In a blender or with a mortar and pestle, blend any green leafy vegetable (I like basil, or baby spinach), any nut (I like pine nuts or walnuts), some olive oil, some garlic and some lemon juice, and any hard cheese (I like parmesan or romano). Yummy!!!!

Yummy! We love pizza at our house too. I make a crust from scratch that is very easy. Here it is:<br>
1 T dry yeast<br>
1 cup of whole wheat flour<br>
1 cup of warm/hot water, (like a hot bath for an adult)<br>
Mix together with spoon.<br><br>
Add 2 T oil<br>
1/2 t salt<br>
1 and 1/2 c of white flour<br><br>
Mix together and then knead for 5 minutes.<br>
Put dough into oiled bowl and cover with clean dishtowel.<br>
Put on warm place for 45-60 min. (I turn my oven on for 15 seconds and then turn off to make a warm place for the dough to rise)<br><br>
Punch down and let rest for a few minutes, then shape on pizza pan or stone. Add toppings.<br><br>
Bake 500 until done.<br><br>
As for toppings, we make pesto in bulk during the summer months and freeze into ice cube trays, makes yummy pizza base. Sometimes, we just use garlic and oil as a base. Good luck!<br>

I saw some jars of "Nomato" (no-tomato) sauce at my organic coop a couple of weeks ago. I think it had a lot of carrots, and maybe beets in it too. That might be something to consider. They had some out to try as a dip, and it was pretty good.<br><br>

Do you heat the olive oil and garlic up? as for my pizza dough, i've used several recipes but the key is to add rosemary to it while it mixes. currently i'm using my bread machine for the dough cause I'm not getting a proper rise yet (usually from June to september i can get it.)

Maybe you could use the sauce, that is on the tarte flambee (also called Flammkuche)?<br><br><br>
Here is a recipe:<br><br>
dough<br>
2cups flour<br>
1t salt<br>
1/4 cup water<br>
6 T milk<br>
1 package yeast<br><br>
topping:<br>
2 T Oil<br>
1 medium onion finely chopped<br>
1 cup creme fraiche (sourcreme as an alternative)<br>
1/2 t salt<br>
1/2 t pepper<br>
a bit of nutmeg<br>
4 slices bacon, cut thinly and fried crispy.<br><br>
Make the dough - mix the ingredients. Knead until the dough is soft and bouncy. Let stand until the dough doubles. During that time, heat 1T oil, add onion cook until brown. Combine creme fraiche, pepper, salt, nutmeg and onion. Heat another T of oil, add bacon, fry. Add bacon to creme fraiche mix. Preheat oven to 450. Butter a baking sheet, roll the dough onto the sheet. Spread the onion mix over the dough, bake until lightly browned and bubbely.<br><br>
This is real good. Alternatively, I looove banana pizza and the same recipe as above, but instead of bacon and onions with apples in rings.

We have one pizza we make using a pesto sauce. VERY yummy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We can't afford pine nuts, so substitute walnuts instead (similar texture).

You can leave them out. pesto is very flexible <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I was also going to suggest pesto. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Or just olive oil with garlic. Sorry you are having to give up tomatoes!

I HAVE A GREAT ALTERNATIVE!!<br><br>
My kids have horrible reflux so pizza sauce is out. Instead of the sauce use Ricotta Cheese!!! REALLY!! It is the best pizza ever...you have got to try it. I got the recipe from the food network television watching Rachael Ray. I will never eat another pizza with regular sauce again!

I simply use olive oil on my crust. And minced garlic.<br>
It is lovely. A pizza restaurant I used to work at had this Pizza- The Gloria Reed and it was Olive oil crust with lots of garlic and cheese and fresh basil.<br>
Very yummy.<br>

Oh and you don't have to give them up too.... You just put some canned or cut up tomatoes on your mini pizza( or- you know you make your own crust- just make ds a small pizza of his own)<br>
Really- the possiblities are endless!

We're dairy-free, so we make a tofu-miso crumbled "sauce" that's a bit like feta cheese. Drain a block of firm or extra firm tofu, and pulse it in the food processor with mild miso (start with 2tbsp, add to taste). Then spread it out on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 until it starts to brown. Voila. (If you don't have a food processor, chill the tofu in the freezer and it will crumble more easily.) It's incredibly tasty as "white" pizza.

Add another vote for pesto sauce - it's what I always use when I make pizza at home.<br><br>
I say just be creative! You could use a lot of different things for a good cream sauce, or just a brush of olive oil, or anything!
