Because it’s Friday and that means it’s pizza night… here’s a super tasty and EASY homemade pizza recipe that just screams ME.

Why does it scream me? Because we all know it’s not really screaming, beyond the slight kick it’s got going on. No tomatoes! I’m not a fan. For as long as I can remember, that’s been the case. I used to ask for light sauce and gradually changed that to no sauce. I’ve since found other pizza sauces that are pretty darn amazing… barbecue, Alfredo and enchilada sauce to name just a few! BUT, I’d yet to make a white garlic pizza.

I’m not really sure what I was waiting for. I love pizza, hate tomatoes and love garlic. Soo… this one is a winner.

Normally I give a pizza dough recipe that would make a really big pizza or two. But for this one I’ve opted to cut it in half, a much more manageable size, especially if you don’t have to feed a ton of people OR you don’t want to be tempted by that much pizza. One 10-12″ pizza, or smaller if you want it a little thicker. That’s it! The perfect size.

An easy thin crust pizza, topped off with a fragrant spicy garlic olive oil and not one, but two varieties of cheese… and an additional sprinkling of pepper. Don’t skip the pepper! It’s one of my favorite additions to pizzas! Try it, you’ll love it!

Stop everything you’re doing and make this thin crust two-cheese white garlic pizza. Or at least add it to your plans asap! I promise you’ll love it!

Thin Crust Two-Cheese White Pizza

An easy homemade white garlic pizza featuring two kinds of cheese and a spicy kick!


1/2C water
1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1/4 tsp granulated sugar
1 1/4C all purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
1C whole milk mozzarella cheese, shredded
Ground black pepper
Parsley, dried or fresh


Heat water to 115°F, add yeast and sugar. Stir to dissolve and allow to proof for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, add flour and salt to the bowl of a stand mixer with dough hook attachment. With mixer running on low, slowly add yeast mixture. Increase speed to medium, mixing until dough comes together and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Transfer to a lightly greased medium bowl. Cover and allow to rise in a warm location for roughly 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil.

In a small bowl, combine olive oil, red pepper flakes and minced garlic. Microwave for 20 seconds, or just until fragrant.

Shape dough to desired size and shape on prepared baking sheet. Brush dough with olive oil mixture. Top with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Sprinkle black pepper throughout and minced parsley.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until desired crispness is reached.

Slice and serve warm.

    White pizza is my love. I love the garlic and the olive oil just oozing between my teeth when I chomp down into it. Sounds gross, huh? Ugh, it’s so good. We went to a pizza place last night and all I could think about was our convo about white pizza, haha
