Trying out different base sauces for pizza can be a very rewarding experience! And while something might not turn our perfect, the chances of it still tasting mighty fine are high.
While I do love old school style with straight up pizza sauce, I also enjoy testing out new sauces as well! Pesto works really great as a pizza base and it’s something that can easily be made at home with honestly, whatever ingredients you have on hand.
Heating up some olive oil with a few cloves of cracked garlic, then brushing that on top of the dough can be used as a base to great pizza. Simple and very easy! Plus it helps keep the pizza really light and airy.
Did you make pasta and have some leftover sauce? Use that as a base! It doesn’t even have to be a tomato sauce, maybe you have some creamy cheese sauce leftover? Maybe you have leftover BBQ sauce from a recent cookout? Or perhaps a leftover dressing from a salad? Try it! Who knows, you just might discover the next best thing!
