Boy, have I found another great pizza recipe for you! This delicious pizza uses a base of homemade Alfredo sauce in lieu of your basic tomato. It is pretty much everything I love about pizza and Fettuccine Alfredo all rolled into one amazing dish! Adding a bunch of minced garlic over the sauce takes this to the next level. The little bursts of garlic in every bite is just heavenly!
The farm fresh tomatoes and spinach give this pizza great flavor and texture. It is a new family favorite for sure and we already can't wait to make it again. If you are looking for an out-of-the-box pizza, give this a try. I promise you will not be disappointed!
For the Alfredo Sauce:
1 C heavy cream
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 C freshly grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
a dash of nutmeg
For the Pizza:
your favorite pizza crust
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 oz shredded mozzarella
1/2 C tomatoes, seeded and chopped
2-3 large handfuls of fresh spinach, chopped
- Cook Alfredo Sauce: In a medium fry pan, bring the butter and cream to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add the parmesan cheese and stir until it melts completely. Continue to simmer until the sauce is slightly thickened, 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Set aside.
- Heat the oven to 475 degrees with a pizza stone inside. Evenly spread the Alfredo sauce around the pizza crust leaving a 1 inch border. Sprinkle the garlic over the sauce. Layer the cheese, spinach, and tomatoes evenly over the pizza. Top with a sprinkle of Italian seasoning.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted and golden at the edges. Allow to cool 3-4 minutes before cutting or else the sauce might be a little to runny. Enjoy!
