I created today’s dish to go with the Garlic Pizza recipe, but the more I make it and use it, the more I realize just how versatile this sauce can be. To date, I’ve used it on pizza, like Dill Pickle Pizza, with pasta, meatballs and even in a lasagna.

It is the perfect substitution for any recipe that calls for Alfredo sauce!

It will make the garlic pizza sauce seem very thin at first, but it thickens as it simmers and cools.

Making the roux

A good start to any yummy, creamy sauce, soup or gravy is with a roux. All it involves is mixing flour with butter or oil and gradually adding liquid.

Another tip for getting a smooth (and not lumpy) sauce is to gradually add your liquid and whisk constantly. In this recipe, I would add 1/2 c of the half and half at a time.

And if you’re new to making sauces at home, don’t fret! The more you practice the easier it becomes, and once you get a good understanding of roux, you’ll soon be creating your own sauce recipes at home.
