ingredients

2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
Salt and black pepper to taste
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (10 ounce) package refrigerator pizza crust, or your favorite homemade crust recipe
1 (28 ounce) can Tuttorosso® Diced Tomatoes in rich tomato juice, drained
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

instructions

  • To prepare white pizza sauce; heat the butter in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add flour and stir until thoroughly mixed. Slowly whisk in milk, adding gradually. Stir in salt, black pepper, garlic and 1 cup of cheese. Reduce heat to low and cook until starting to thicken; remove from heat. Will thicken more upon standing.
  • Preheat oven to 425o F. Lightly grease 12” pizza pan or 13x9 inch pan. Unroll pizza crust and place on greased pan. Starting at center press dough out with hands to edge of pan. Push up the sides about ¼ inch.
  • Spread cheese sauce mixture on crust. Arrange diced tomatoes in a single layer over cheese.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese over tomatoes. Bake 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Just before serving sprinkle with fresh basil.
