The blogger notes that this pizza can be customized with any vegetables of your choice, so feel free to modify it for picky eaters. If you have pizza purists in your house, they might be a little wary of a non-tomato-based sauce, but this garlic cream sauce is bound to make them a believer in the non-traditional.

You can check out another great twist on this concept in this BBQ chicken pizza from Pillsbury. It uses a Pillsbury refrigerated classic pizza crust, so mixing or kneading is not required. It comes together in just 40 minutes, with only about 15 minutes of prep time. That’s faster than Domino’s! The flavors of barbecue, red onion and cilantro offer a unique and exciting twist on ho-hum pizza.


And then there’s this roasted garlic chicken pizza from Nutmeg Nanny, a copycat recipe based on a favorite pie from California Pizza Kitchen. The garlic flavor is strong, and the aroma will have you salivating while it’s still in the oven. It’s ready in just 30 minutes and would be perfect to serve at a pizza party with friends. You may want to serve with a side of mints to combat all the garlic breath, though.

This “white” pizza doesn’t really have a sauce in the conventional sense and instead is smothered in cheese and olive oil.
