White Garlic Pizza Sauce
Although I call this a "pizza" sauce, it really is one of the most versatile sauces that I make. I have used it for a wide variety of things; pizza, pasta, and even chicken! The possibilities are really endless. Another great quality about this sauce is that you can very easily make it your own by adding different herbs or spices!
3 T butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 T flour
1.5 cups milk, warmed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Begin by melting the butter in a small sauce pan. Once the butter is almost all melted, add the minced garlic and allow to cook until garlic is softened...usually 1-2 minutes.
After the garlic is cooked, add the flour, using a whisk. Stir constantly.. This mixture should form a paste and will act as a thickener for the sauce once you add the milk. In order to get rid of the starchy flour taste, you have to cook the mixture for an additional 1-2 minutes.
Next, begin adding the milk to the flour mixture while whisking.
Finally, after you've added all of the milk, add the salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings!
Cook this mixture for 4-6 minutes until it begins to simmer and becomes thick. Store in an air tight container (I like mason jars best), in the fridge for up to a week. The sauce may thicken while sitting in the fridge, but you can easily thin it out by re-heating it and adding milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached!
