I found this recipe, and I thought I would give it a try, especially since I like easy recipes. :) Although most pizza crust recipes are not too difficult, I chose the garlic herb pizza crust since I had been thinking about the garlicky pizza bianca I had way back in undergrad. It's funny how sometimes you'll eat a food and never think about it for years, and then suddenly, it pops back into mind. Anyhow, I thought this crust would go really well with the white garlic sauce pizza since it has some garlic flavor as well, and I usually like to add some herbs when making a pizza crust. I have to say, this dough started smelling good before it even hit the oven! The slight garlic scent and Italian herbs combined to create a delicious fragrance, and it only improved after baking! I couldn't resist eating a bit of the crust by itself before adding the pizza toppings. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
