A classic white pizza with a whole-wheat blend crust is the perfect cheesy, oily, and garlic-y pizza for any day of the week!

We went to an animal shelter this past weekend and I don’t know why I thought that was a good idea. I wanted to take home all the kitties and dogs. It’s so sad!! All the cats and dogs are just sitting in their little ‘homes’ staring at humans coming in and out of the center and hoping and wishing they’ll get taken home with them. Wahhhh! It really angers me seeing the older cats and dogs there that were given up/surrendered because their owners didn’t want to deal with them anymore. I mean, what did you think it was going to happen to your pet once it got older? You wouldn’t give up your child when they got older or if they have special needs so why would you give up your pet? Anyway – super sad and probably not the best way to spend Valentine’s Day. I don’t recommend it ;)

We are freezing our butts off here. I mean, I’m sure there are places northeast that are suffering (and have been) for weeks longer but geez, I’ve never felt this kinda cold in a while! RealFeel said it was -28 degrees yesterday morning. AND I went to SoulCycle in the city. Haha that is some dedication. I will admit, walking two blocks from my car to SoulCycle and back, my entire face went numb and my hands were frozen. I sat in the car for a good 5 minutes defrosting before I could start driving, ha

Every time I go to a pizza place, I’m always so torn as to what to order. I LOVE me a good white pizza because I love that super garlic-y flavor with all that oil and cheese, but then I’m like I need meat. Thankfully, all the pizza places I’ve gone to, they’re more than happy to accommodate half and half pizzas so I can always get my fill :) however, a couple months ago, a huge white pizza hankering came over me. I was like I NEED to have a super garlic-y white pizza right NOW. So I made one and it was glorious.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly flour a 13-inch pizza pan.

  2. Using your hands, gently stretch the dough in the pizza pan. Leaving a 1-inch border from the edge, brush olive oil and minced garlic all over the dough. It's okay if the minced garlic doesn't cover all the space.
  3. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese all over top then the Italian seasoning and salt.
  4. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and the crust has browned around the edges.
  5. Let cool for about 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.

    We got to Pets Mart all the time to look at the animals and I agree on wanting to take some home. White pizza is one of my favorites!

    Love love love white pizza. This looks amazing. And that seriously is dedication to go to soulcycle in that kind of brutal cold! Brrrr.

    Drooling over this gorgeous pizza! Mmmm!!

  4. 02/16/2015 at 10:46 am

    oh god. I feel like crying just reading that- I am an animal lover to the max and early Pete and I had to have an agreement that I couldn’t go to any shelters or he knew we would have a whole houseful. But it just breaks my heart, The pizza looks wonderful though :)

  5. 02/16/2015 at 10:52 am

    Nice and simple and always good!

  6. 02/16/2015 at 12:01 pm

    White pizza is the best! This one looks amazing, as per usual. And um, yeahhh, the last time I went to an animal shelter I came home with a kitten. ;)

  7. 02/16/2015 at 12:51 pm

    This looks PERFECT! I am drooling!

  8. 02/16/2015 at 12:54 pm

    I love a good white pizza, this looks fab!

    Glorious white pizza, indeed, Julie! But, oh-mah-garsh…those sweet little babies, cats and dogs, both young and old. I want to adopt them all! Every single time we go to PetSmart or our local Humane Society to donate, or even watch those dreary ASPCA commercials, the tears flow! *sniff, sniff*

    Sometimes seniors have to give up their pets when they can no longer look after them or they have to move into assisted living and they have no one to take them. It’s not always done willingly.

      I didn’t think about that aspect of it – thanks for giving me another perspective :)

  12. 02/16/2015 at 5:53 pm

    I feel the same; I can’t stand to think about people abandoning their pets. It seems so immature; did they think they would also be little puppies/kittens?
    Anyways, on a not-so-angry note, this pizza looks delicious! A few nights ago my family and I were talking about how we needed to make a white pizza; I think this just might be the little nudge I needed to make it for dinner tomorrow :)

    We don’t always have a choice when it comes to our pets. I had two wonderful cocketiels that I dearly loved but I became allergic to the dander, and was sick for 5 months before I was diagnosed with an offshoot of bird flu. I had to give them up, bird cage, toys, birds, and all. It took me a good 6 months to get completely over the symptoms after countless hours of cleaning and re-cleaning the house. It was a beautiful sunny day when I brought them to a shelter, but the tears coming down made it rain all the way home, and for days after. Months later I would still find myself whistling to them to get an answer, go check to see why they were not answering, just to find the empty spot where the cage had been. It really is heartbreaking to SOME of us when we have to give up our feathered or furred babies like that.
    Pizza looks yummy! If I didn’t already have the chicken out for cordon bleu for dinner, I know what I would be making instead!

      So sorry that happened to you! :( hope you get to try this pizza sometime!

  14. 02/16/2015 at 7:09 pm

    This looks like SUCH a good idea. I think the kids and I will be making pizza this week.

    Both of our kitties are rescue animals. It IS heartbreaking to see where they come from. :(

    I’ve never had a white pizza before but you’ve certainly got me craving one now!

  16. 02/16/2015 at 7:21 pm

    Oh my! YUM. I love this pizza :)

  17. 02/16/2015 at 10:44 pm

    it breaks my heart with those sad commercials, i feel helpless with those pets :( on a different note, the pizza looks delicious, i crave for white sauce every now and then,,

  18. 02/17/2015 at 8:52 am

    Love a good white pizza! Yours looks perfect!

  19. 02/17/2015 at 2:51 pm

    Really wish my husband was not lactose intolerant… but then again we would eat things like this every day then, and weight 500lbs! Looks fab!

  20. 02/17/2015 at 11:54 pm

    You nailed the dilemma…white pizza or meat?! Love that you ended up with both!

  21. Love love love white pizza! We’re finally getting SoulCycle in Chicago and I’m excited to try it. We have FlyWheel, which I love, so I’m interested to see what the difference is. Have you taken FlyWheel before and can compare?

    • Julie
      02/18/2015 at 4:12 pm

      No, I haven’t taken at FlyWheel before BUT my good friend who I go to SoulCycle with is from Chicago and has taken FlyWheel and says they’re both awesome!

    White sauce pizza trumps red sauce any day! Looks soooo yummy! That crust looks perfect. Not too thick, not too thin. Score!

    Love, love, love white pizza. I’m going to try this. I usually buy Red Baron cheese french bread pizza (no red sauce) because it is easier for one. On pets : the last 5 pets (3 dogs,2 cats) have all been shelter or rescue saves. Wish I could afford more.

    do you have to use whole wheat crust or can you just use normal pizza crust? I’ve never had white pizza before.

    • Julie
      09/17/2015 at 6:38 am

      You can use normal pizza crust

    Whole wheat it can be gluten-free then right? You probably meant the toppings only right that are gluten-free?

      If you are coming to my site from Pinterest or another site that is labeling my recipes for me based on their “generator,” please do not use that as your guide because they’re wrong 90% of the time . They have said recipes of mine are “dairy-free” when there’s clearly milk in the recipe. I didn’t state this recipe was gluten-free at all in my post so please disregard what you have read from whatever site you are coming from. :)
