Whitestone Pizza (Plus Two)

Elise got a craving for Whitestone pizza the other day and once she mentioned it, I did too. This is our favorite kind of pizza: no tomato sauce, just olive oil, basil, and garlic brushed on the crust, then topped with mozzarella, parmesan, and dollops of ricotta. For the boys who are not really fans, I made regular sausage pizza and for kicks, made one more using leftover veggie burger crumbles and some chopped veggies. This last one was actually really tasty and I'll make it again.

Elise's Whitestone Pizza

Use your favorite pizza dough or crust. (We made our own dough in the bread machine, and par-baked it for about 5 minutes in a 425 degree oven.) Brush on olive oil, chopped basil, and a couple of cloves of minced garlic.

Top with cheese and bake for an additional 7-10 minutes, until the cheese is melted. But you probably know how to bake pizza already.

Trio of Za: Sausage/mushroom, Whitestone, and veggie-veggie (veggie burger crumbles with roasted vegetables)


  1. Oh MAN that pizza looks awesome. I am the same way... I looove pizza with just olive oil, seasoning and some yummy cheese. :D Sea Marie

  2. Oh my...that pizza looks SO good! That large spots of cheese makes my mouth water just a little.

  3. looks so completely delicious! I love a thin crust pizza with a sprinkle of toppings- so you can taste all the ingredients.

  4. White pizza is my favorite! I usually mix the ricotta with salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder, and some Emeril's seasoning, spread over the oiled crust, top with spinach and then mozzarella. Of course, my husband needs a meat and anchovy pizza instead, but that's ok with me.

  5. The white pizza looks delicious. Of course since my hubby learned that tomatoes, even those cooked in sauces and ketchup, is a fantastic antioxidant, with cancer preventive attributes, he now wants tomato sauce on everything. I think he'd put it on his breakfast cereal ... that is if he ate breakfast cereal. LOL

  6. Hmm, maybe it is time for me to also try a no-tomato pizza. I would either hate it or love it forever but looking at your photos it is worth trying! I am getting hungry although I just had dinner :)
