Because it’s Friday and that means it’s pizza night… here’s a super tasty and EASY homemade pizza recipe that just screams ME.

Why does it scream me? Because we all know it’s not really screaming, beyond the slight kick it’s got going on. No tomatoes! I’m not a fan. For as long as I can remember, that’s been the case. I used to ask for light sauce and gradually changed that to no sauce. I’ve since found other pizza sauces that are pretty darn amazing… barbecue, Alfredo and enchilada sauce to name just a few! BUT, I’d yet to make a white garlic pizza.

I’m not really sure what I was waiting for. I love pizza, hate tomatoes and love garlic. Soo… this one is a winner.

Normally I give a pizza dough recipe that would make a really big pizza or two. But for this one I’ve opted to cut it in half, a much more manageable size, especially if you don’t have to feed a ton of people OR you don’t want to be tempted by that much pizza. One 10-12″ pizza, or smaller if you want it a little thicker. That’s it! The perfect size.

An easy thin crust pizza, topped off with a fragrant spicy garlic olive oil and not one, but two varieties of cheese… and an additional sprinkling of pepper. Don’t skip the pepper! It’s one of my favorite additions to pizzas! Try it, you’ll love it!

Stop everything you’re doing and make this thin crust two-cheese white garlic pizza. Or at least add it to your plans asap! I promise you’ll love it!

An easy homemade white garlic pizza featuring two kinds of cheese and a spicy kick!


  • 1/2 C water
  • 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1/4 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1 C whole milk mozzarella cheese, shredded

  • In a small bowl, combine olive oil, red pepper flakes and minced garlic. Microwave for 20 seconds, or just until fragrant.
  • Shape dough to desired size and shape on prepared baking sheet. Brush dough with olive oil mixture. Top with Parmesan cheese and mozzarella. Sprinkle black pepper throughout and minced parsley.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until desired crispness is reached.
  • Slice and serve warm.
