So, after writing about the white garlic sauce pizza, I decided I wanted to make something more like the standard pizza bianca. Although, after doing some research, I'm finding out that pizza bianca, also known as schacciata, is actually served without cheese but with just some garlic, rosemary, and sea salt in olive oil, spread over the crust. However, I was going for something more like what I had eaten in undergrad and not so much for authenticity. :P The flavor of this pizza was pretty much what I remembered, but the crust recipe I used didn't quite work out, so I'll need to do some more research and experimentation on that. I'm thinking about adding a raising step earlier on since this dough did not rise for me at all! If anyone has any hints or recommendations for getting the crust to work out, let me know! So even though I didn't get the tender, soft crust I would have liked, this white pizza was still quite tasty.
|pizza crust||some options: garlic herb pizza crust, flatbread|
|cheese||I used Romano, Mozzarella, and something else - maybe Jack?|
- Mix garlic and olive oil and spread over crust. Another option might be roasted garlic and roasted garlic oil.
- Top with cheese.
- Bake at 300-350F until cheese melted.
