Are you in the mood for pizza without tomato sauce? You're in the right place!
When it comes to pizza, tomato sauce is a classic option. But not everyone likes or can eat tomato-based sauces (looking at you, my friends with GERD), and everyone deserves to enjoy eating pizza if they want to!
This collection of pizza recipes without tomato sauce just goes to show how creative you can get when it comes to pizza sauce and toppings. Don't limit yourself to tomato sauce when so many unique pizzas without tomato sauce exist!
And it's not just white pizzas either!
Here you'll find everything from barbecue sauce pizzas to, yes, a variety of white pizzas and even a chicken marsala pizza. The best part? These sauces and toppings work whether you're making thin crust pizza or thick crust pizza recipes!
It's probably no surprise to hear that as a trained pastry chef with a home cook mentality, I love using pizza to get creative with flavor pairings and toppings. Pizza is a great way to use up leftovers and turn them into something new, unique, and special!
While I'll never turn down a classic red sauce pizza moment, I love developing homemade pizza recipes without tomato sauces, because a whole new world of flavor options opens up. There’s no bland pizza pies around here— I promise.
Don't love arugula? Try this pizza with mâche, watercress, frisée or baby kale instead!
Note: This breakfast pizza does have a decent amount of prep work involved. But you can prep the bacon and potatoes the night before if you like, use store bought bacon bits, or crisp up some frozen hash browns instead of cooking the potatoes from scratch!
Don't knock this one until you've tried it. Fries on a pizza might seem weird, but it's so good — the mozzarella and cheese curds with the rich dark brown gravy are a true cheese lovers dream!
I often use leftover sous vide carnitas when I make this pizza, but the recipe does include instructions for making a small batch of pulled pork if you're working from scratch.
You can also use store bought pulled pork — just make sure it's fully cooked before it goes on the pizza!
For a truly tomato-free pizza, leave the tomatoes off this cheeseburger pizza!
I promise you've never had a pizza like this before! It's so unique and the sweet-salty-crispy textures are so good.
You can also use a half batch of my focaccia pizza dough for this chicken marasala pizza recipe!
And finally, here's my go-to olive oil white pizza sauce for when I make pizzas without tomato sauce.
I know it's not a whole pizza recipe, but it's a super versatile base for a pizza sauce that you can use when you dream up your own unique pizza creations without using tomato sauce!
