I have a brand-new obsession, and it takes the form of a creamy, cheesy sauce on a crispy-yet-chewy pizza. Holy hallelujah, it is insane.
I’m a bit iffy with pizza, I think owing to the fact I don’t really like tomato-based sauces. And when everyone’s slapping that shit all over pizza, you can imagine I can really take it or leave it. But one day, I came across a recipe that used an alfredo-type sauce and I got up that very minute and made pizza dough. It was about 10am but there was no getting in between this cheese sauce and my mouth.
I’ve heard of pizza bianca, I’ve had white-sauce based pizzas before… but nothing like this. It’s not for the faint-hearted, the fat-avoidant, the calorie-counter. Which is fine, because that’s more for me. I’m pretty sure the health factor of spinach on a pizza is going to cancel out anything else anyway (and hey, the pizza dough is half whole wheat, this is basically diet food).
I put fresh tomato on the outside of mine but I won’t be doing it again. The spinach needs the sauce, the sauce needs the spinach. And maybe a liberal shake of chilli flakes.
I know what I’m having for dinner tonight.
