Roasted Garlic, Chicken & Herb White Pizza – Roasted garlic sauce topped with chicken, red onions, and herbs. A great white chicken pizza that will rival any pizza out there!
The name of this pizza is kind of a mouthful, but I just didn’t want to leave anything out. I call it Roasted Garlic White Chicken Pizza for short. It isn’t just your average white pizza sauce, so it needs to be noted that it uses roasted garlic!
If you have never roasted garlic before don’t worry! I have a post for How To Roast Garlic that will walk you through it. It is super simple.
Often times white pizza is over the top heavy with calories and fat. This white pizza recipe uses skim milk and a little half and half to make it super creamy, but not something you have to feel guilty about.
To make the sauce you really can use whatever milk product you have. I like to use the lower fat kind, so it is lower in calories. But heavy cream would make it over the top rich and delicious. So whatever you have works.
To make this pizza a little healthier I also cut down on the cheese by quite a bit. You don’t want to cover up the flavor of the roasted garlic, so you only need a little. And those fresh herbs give it lots of flavor without any guilt.
What To Serve With Pizza
How to Make White Pizza Sauce
- First you need to melt the butter and then sauté the minced roasted garlic for just a couple minutes.
- Add in the flour and stir until all the flour is blended with the butter and light golden brown.
- Whisk in the milk and half and half until smooth. I use a combination of milk and half and half and half to make it a little better for you. You can really use any combination or milk, cream or half and half that you want.
- Season with pepper and let the sauce simmer until it thickens slightly, and then mix in the Parmesan cheese.
- Spread your pizza crust onto a prepared baking sheet and then spread the sauce over the crust.
- Top with the chicken, chopped onions and cheese and then bake until the cheese is melted and golden and the crust is done.
- Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh herbs before slicing to serve.
What Toppings Go Well with White Pizza Sauce
You really can’t go wrong with anything! If it goes on a traditional red sauce pizza it will probably be great on a white pizza as well. But I do have some favorites!
- Fresh Tomatoes
How to Store White Pizza Sauce
If you have leftovers you and easily store this sauce in the fridge or freezer. It will last a few days in the fridge in an air tight container. It also is great on pasta, so if you want to make extra, it definitely won’t go to waste!
You can even freeze this white sauce! Make sure the sauce is completely cooled and store in an air tight container. It will last for a couple months until your next pizza night! Nothing beats homemade pizza!
