What’s a White Pizza Sauce?

Whenever I talk about white pizza sauce with my colleagues at work or friends at home, they often refer to this sauce as Alfredo sauce. While both sauces share many ingredients, they have different consistency as white pizza sauce contains flour.

The latter is made from a mixture of fat and flour that acts as a thickening agent to deliver a thicker consistency. However, alfredo sauce is on the thinner side as it’s made with paste.

When trying to pin down the right pizza toppings for this recipe, there’s one main factor to consider – Your preference.

I know you are expecting me to share the best toppings for a white pizza sauce, but this is something you need to figure out yourself. Besides, this sauce is incredibly versatile, which means you don’t have to limit yourself to the toppings I’ll be sharing in this post.

Keep in mind that these are personal choices and might not work for you. However, you shouldn’t have any issue incorporating your favorite toppings with this sauce.

How to Store your White Pizza Sauce?

It’s okay to have some extra sauce after making enough pizzas. All that’s required of you is to allow the white pizza sauce to cool to room temperature before placing the extra sauce in an airtight container, then refrigerate for up to 5 days, making it ideal for people planning a movie or family reunion pizza night.

Refrigerating the sauce makes it a bit thick, but there should be no hassle spreading it over your dough. Sometimes, applying a cold white pizza sauce might be a bit difficult. However, you can thin the sauce out by microwaving it for a short period.

Note, the sauce shouldn’t be placed inside the freezer to avoid the cream and milk separation.
