The secret to white pizza

Cheese, cheese and more cheese! Because this is a tomato sauce-less pizza, you need cheese to add moisture to the crust. Creamy feta, tangy Parmesan, mozzarella and provolone do the trick nicely in this yummy Gourmet White Pizza recipe. Yes, friends. FOUR types of cheese. This pizza is to die for!

What’s the best crust to use?

This is where the “easy” comes in this Easy White Pizza. For this recipe I used a pre-cooked naan pizza crust from Stonefire Flatbreads. This isn’t a sponsored post, but I just love Stonefire.

You can make your own homemade pizza crust, or use any kind of store-bought crust you like. This crust is just the right amount of thickness and since it was pre-cooked, I only had to bake this pizza for six minutes!

Topping Ideas

Typically, a white pizza is covered in tomatoes, garlic and veggies. For this pizza I used not one but two types of tomatoes: Roma and sun-dried.

The Roma were juicy and tangy and the sun-dried tomatoes provided a slightly sweet element to the delicious pizza. But just like any pizza, the sky’s the limit to what kind and how many toppings you use. Feel free to get creative!

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Leave some space around the edge of the pizza crust when you add the toppings.
  • To get the cheese browned, once baked, you can place it under the broiler for a few minutes.
  • Feel free to add whatever other toppings you like, the sky’s the limit!

Adapted and Inspired by Mellow Mushroom’s Gourmet White Pizza. Recipe in no way officially affiliated with Mellow Mushroom. This is just my personal take on the pizza.

Ingredients

  • 1 premade pizza crust I used a pre-cooked crust that I linked to above. You can use whatever crust recipe or premade crust that you like best. Cook according to package directions if it is not precooked. These directions will assume your crust is already precooked
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic divided
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan divided
  • 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes if in oil, rinse
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella/provolone blend cheese
  • 2 roma tomatoes sliced
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F

  • Brush 2 tablespoons olive oil into the middle of your pizza crust, leaving about an inch on all sides for the crust.

  • Brush 1 tablespoon garlic onto olive oil and sprinkle with 1/8 parmesan cheese.

  • Add sundried tomatoes, spaced out evenly.

  • Top the entire center of crust with the shredded cheese.

  • Add roma tomato slices and feta, spacing evenly.

  • Brush outside circle of crust with the remaining olive oil, garlic, parmesan, and pepper.

  • Bake pizza for 6-8 minutes (or according to crust instructions), until crust is browned and cheese is fully melted.

  • Broil for 3-4 minutes (optional) to make the cheese bubble and brown even more.

  • Slice and serve. Enjoy!

Made this for our anniversary dinner with homemade Caesar salad and the pizza was by far the better part! I usually do the herbed dough from TJ’s but just did a pillsbury crust because #covid. It was so dang good. I mixed the garlic, parm cheese, salt and pepper together at the beginning and used it for the base and on the outer crust. 10/10 would recommend!White Pizza Recipe (Gourmet White Copycat) - The Cookie Rookie (22)

My hubby, 8 year old son and I loved this! My 5 year old still hates pizza even though she tried a piece lol. My 2 year old is on a trying things strike so yeah. ???? We made it for the first time today and added fresh basil to it after it was finished cooking. I combined step 2, 3 and 7 unknowingly because I didn’t read all the way through instructors first, lol. Plus, I have an 8, 5.5 and 2 year old and am very pregnant so just trying to get dinner on the table quickly. ???? Thank you though for this quick, easy delicious recipe!!White Pizza Recipe (Gourmet White Copycat) - The Cookie Rookie (25)
