White Pizza Sauce

Instead of tomato, this sauce uses milk as the main ingredient. Can you imagine using a creamy milk sauce instead of the usual tomato sauce? This white sauce features cheese and a mixture of seasoning to give it a flavor that’ll be quite the touch for your pizza. It’s worth a try!

The key to make a good sauce to use on the dough is to make it as thick as possible. That’s why this recipe includes flour and cheese, so if you see the sauce is too watery, add a bit more of flour and cheese, and mix together.

This sauce goes well with pizza recipes including meat — if you prefer a mellower flavor than the spicy and bold sauces that are usually recommended with meat. Nevertheless, it’s a nice choice of sauce to use at some point, so let’s give this recipe a try!

Servings: 1 cup


  • Saucepan


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 3 tbsp wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 tbsp basil finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp oregano finely chopped


  • Heat up the butter in the saucepan, and cook the onion and the garlic for one minute.
  • Add the flour into the saucepan, and mix together with the onion and the garlic. Stir the sauce for two minutes.
  • Add the milk, parmesan cheese, basil, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • It may take around five minutes for the cheese to melt, so in the meantime, keep stirring the sauce. You must stir until the cheese has completely melted into the sauce. Check how thick the sauce is, and add more flour if you'd like to make it thicker. Remember you can't let it be too watery.
