Looking for a tasty substitute for traditional pizza sauce? Try this incredible cheesy version and you may never go back!
First things first, toss out your favorite pizza crust recipe into a disk to form your crust.
Thanks, Steve, what a fantastic demonstrator you are. And that apron makes you look as good as this pizza is going to taste.
Next you’ll want to fill your food processor with some fresh spinach and pulse until its finely chopped. Throw in about 3/4 cup of cottage cheese, along with some minced garlic, basil, and oregano. You know how much you like these, add to your own preference.
Pulse until you get a smooth pale green sauce. The cottage cheese will have become more of a ricotta texture. Spread on your crust, but leave a fairly wide edge.
If you want to add some portabellas to your pizza, now is a good time to remove the stems and chop them to your desired size.
Brush the fungi with some olive oil, and while you’re at it brush some on that edge of your crust you left bare.
Bake in a preheated oven at 400° for 10-14 minutes. When the cheese is melted and the crust is lightly browned and your house smells like heaven it is done. Remove, slice, wait 2-3 minutes so you don’t burn the roof of your mouth.
But I will, anyway… for mine.
