15 White Pizza Recipes
While red sauce may be a classic choice, white pizzas make for equally delicious dinners thanks in part to their cheesy, creamy, and rich sauces. Without the acidity of tomato sauce, more subtle toppings like specialty cheeses, fresh herbs, and heirloom vegetables have a chance to shine. So whip up your sauce and roll out the dough. White pizzas are just what you need for a tasty dinner the whole family will love.
White Pizza with Porcinis
With a sweet honey dough to balance savory cheese and mildly nutty porcini mushrooms, this white pizza feels elevated and special despite being quite easy.

If you can find fresh porcinis, also known as cepes and the great bolete, you should definitely use them!"
