White Pizza Sauce

White pizza sauce is rich and delicious. Here are a couple of recipes that are easy and tasty. We'll show you how to make these using simple ingredients from your pantry and fridge.

White sauce for pizza is a very popular alternative to traditional tomato based sauce. The creamy texture and rich flavor add a lot of depth of flavor to your pizza.

Even popular pizza chains are adding white sauces to their menu. Domino's white sauce is pretty good (I typically prefer this pizza sauce recipe), and worth a try if you enjoy white sauce.

I thought I'd try and recreate their white sauce, but to be honest, when I saw the ingredients in Domino's white sauce, I opted for the more simple, yet delicious recipe below.

But in case you're interested, the ingredients in Domino's white sauce are listed on their website. I'm sure you'll agree that something similar could be recreated at home!

Make A White Sauce At Home

What pizza toppings go with white sauce? Here are a few suggestions:

  • Grilled chicken
  • Sliced steak
  • Ham
  • Green peppers
  • Red onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Basil leaves

Here's that white pizza sauce recipe...But first, a couple tips:

  • You can use dried basil instead of Italian seasoning if that's what you have on hand.
  • The sauce will get a bit thick if it sits too long. If that happens, don't fret. You can add a splash of milk and reheat it to thin it out a bit.
  • For a quick and easy pie for your sauce, use a Boboli pizza crust or refrigerated pizza dough to make your homemade pizza recipe fast and easy.

Okay, for the recipe ...

White Pizza Sauce

Note: use this as a yummy sauce on noodles as well.


  • 2 tbs. margarine or butter
  • 3 tbs. flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese or shredded havarti


Use a medium saucepan to melt the butter over medium heat.

Add the flour and mix together. Slowly add the milk to the pan, using a wire whisk to mix it well with the butter/flour mixture. Add all the other ingredients and stir until blended. Sauce will thicken as it stands.

Makes enough for one large pizza (or a plate of noodles!).
