White Garlic Pizza

 

Inspired by the most recent Sprouts blogger event at Cook Street School of Culinary Arts, this pizza has quickly become one of my favorite at home pizza recipes. It's so simple and you don't need any pizza sauce on hand. I created my own dough using my sourdough starter, but you can use your favorite dough recipe or pre packaged dough.

 
 

Garlic Olive Oil

Glory halleujah. This infused oil is an homage to the garlic gods. Perfect for bread dipping, pizza topping, or incorporating into a dressing.
