Ingredients

White garlic pizza sauce

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, then whisk in the flour. Cook, stirring, for a few minutes until the butter/flour mixture turns light brown.
  2. Whisk in the milk and cook for another minute or two until the mixture has thickened.
  3. Squeeze the cloves from the head of roasted garlic into the mixture, add the nutmeg, and stir. Turn off the heat stir in the Parmesan. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees and oil a pizza pan or baking sheet with olive oil. Shape the pizza dough on the pan, stretching it to reach the edges.
  2. Spread the White Garlic Pizza Sauce on the dough and top with the mushrooms and kale.
  3. Place big dollops of ricotta cheese around the pizza and fill in any big gaps with the little mozzarella balls. 
  4. Drizzle the edges of the crust with olive oil (this helps it brown), and sprinkle the whole thing, including the crust edges, with flaky sea slat and either crushed red pepper or Aleppo pepper.
  5. Bake, rotating halfway through cooking, until the cheese is melty and the crust is brown on the edges and underneath (use a spatula to check underneath). In my oven, this takes 18 minutes.
