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.
This pizza sauce is a charm in my house – my little prince, and I always love to have this any time, any day. However, it’s easy to whip up with just these simple ingredients to create a lovely pizza experience.

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.
