Pizza Friday - White Pizza with Spinach and Sausage

I don't usually make white pizza, but after my friend Melissa raved about a white pizza she made with roasted garlic, spinach and sausage I decided to try it.


I had some sausage and caramelized onions in the freezer from the last time I made sausage pizza. Melissa uses fresh spinach on her pizza, but I like the ease of frozen.

Roasted Garlic Paste
Melissa's Recipe

1-2 heads garlic, papery skins removed
Olive oil
Dried oregano, thyme, basil, red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Cut the tops off the heads of garlic, drizzle with oil and wrap in tinfoil. Bake for 30-35 minutes, then let cool for 10-15 minutes. Squeeze the garlic out and mash it up (you can put it through a ricer into a bowl), add a little oil to get it spreadable, then add pinches of dried oregano, thyme, basil, salt, red pepper flake, pepper. You can use any or all of those as you see fit. Just a big pinch of this, pinch of that, a dash more oil if you need it. For sure, at least put the oregano in there.
Pin It!
