Bumping Into The Idea of a White Pizza

Last night I was in the mood for pizza, but I didn't have tomato sauce of any kind. Looking at what food I did have, I decided to try out a white pizza. Instead of tomato sauce, it uses cheese as a base.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 19 min
Ready in: 34 min
Yields: 1 medium pizza

Note Regarding Prep and Cook Times:

If you make your own pizza dough, more prep time is required. The above estimate is based on using a prepared unbaked crust.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium crust
  • 2 or 4 ounces cream or Neufchatel cheese
  • 1/4 cup peppers, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/2 medium potato, diced
  • 1/2 cup broccoli, frozen or pre-cooked
  • 2 slices tomato, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon desired seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. If you have an unbaked pizza crust, preheat oven to 450 degrees (If it is already baked, preheat to 400 degrees)
  2. Saute the peppers, onion, garlic, broccoli and chopped potato. Add tomato, and cook a little longer
  3. Season vegetables with your choice of seasoning. I used Adobo seasoning (Goya), but garlic powder, herbs, or even taco seasoning would taste great
  4. Bake the crust on a pizza pan or cookie sheet for about 7 minutes, and then take it out and let it cool off. Lower temperature to 400 degrees (if using a pre-baked crust, don't worry about this step)
  5. Once crust is cool, spread with cream cheese
  6. Add cooked potatoes and vegetables
  7. Sprinkle with parsley
  8. Sprinkle with shredded cheese
  9. Pop back into the oven for about 12 minutes, until cheese is melted
  10. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on the pizza

Thanks to Fellow Hubbers

When it comes to food posts, I tend to get the material ready and leave it for a while before actually completing it. But when I posted a photo of this pizza on Facebook, JustAskSusan and Victoria Lynn both asked me for the recipe. In addition, Susan gave me advice for easily saving photos from my cellphone to my computer, which was the only thing that may have delayed this post. So thanks, both of you.

I hope everyone enjoys this recipe as much as I did! It absolutely hit the spot, and gave my taste buds something different to feast on.

      Hi Kathryn, I must say that you are full of unique recipes. This one sounds delicious. I think a cookbook is in order.

      Careermommy,

      Thanks. It was the result of having limited food. I had to come up with something that used food I actually had! I can be creative when my supply gets lower than usual!

      I appreciate that you took the time to read and comment, and I hope you have a wonderful night.

      Careermommy, I added a link to your roasted potato and pepper recipe! Those veggies are all on this pizza, so anyone that likes the potatoes and peppers on it are likely to enjoy your recipe.

      I have never heard of a white pizza or one without sauce! And for that matter, one with potatoes. I think you have created a one of a kind pizza here. Thanks for sharing how to be creative with what you have on hand. Up and nore. Blessings, Faith Reaper

      Faith,

      I didn't hear about a white pizza until my sister-in-law had some a few years ago when I lived with her and my brother for a few months. She didn't like pizza with tomato sauce, so when she ordered pizza, it was a white pizza. I don't think all of these have the same white topping, though. I think other cheeses can be used. But this one hit the spot.

      I used potatoes on mine for the first time a few months ago, and liked it. I really like potatoes, and I already know the combination of potatoes and veggies is good. It works well, and is something a little different!

      You're welcome. It has been fun working with the ingredients I have to create interesting meals. It's almost easier than creating meals when I have a huge supply of food, because then I have so many options I'm not always quite sure what I want.

      Have a wonderful day, and thanks for gracing my page with your presence.

      Hi Kathryn,

      You always come up with unique recipe ideas and this sounds and looks scrummy! I have still to make a homemade pizza but will look for some bases tomorrow when shopping after this tasty idea. I am also going to do your pancakes this week just need the eggs. Thanks for another great share. Votes, shared and pinned all the way my friend.

      Suzie,

      I especially get creative when I run out of some of my normal food staples. One thing I like about making things homemade is that it doesn't matter if I don't have a premade crust or bread, I can make it myself!

      This pizza was an interesting one to make. I like to make my own crust, and discovered the oven doesn't have to be preheated for as long as I usually have it. This crust came out pretty crispy, but the pizza cooked quickly. I like trying out different ways of cooking things.

      This pizza tasted even better than I thought it would. And I already have an idea for another pizza. I can hardly wait to try it out.

      I hope you like the pancakes! I like making pancakes of all kinds, and I have ideas for more versions, as well.

      Thanks for taking the time to visit my page and comment, and I hope you are doing okay.

      You're welcome, and thanks for the share, vote and pin.

      Take care, my friend.

      This looks like a delicious alternative to pizza with tomato sauce. I actually prefer a creamier sauce to a red sauce anyway, so I'm sure I'll love this pizza with cream cheese. Thanks for sharing this great idea, I'll have to give it a try.

      Vicki, You're welcome, and thanks for being interested in it to begin with! It is more motivating to post an article when I know others will definitely be interested.

      When I thought of making a white pizza, I was delighted with the idea of a white pizza. I had never made one before. And since I love potatoes, adding them seemed natural. I'm glad I did, because they added a very nice flavor, and made it more substantial.

      I hope you enjoy it as much as I do when you try it. This makes me want another one!

      Thanks for reading and commenting, and have a fantastic day.
