White Sauce for Pizza (or whatever you want to slather it on)

I made a whole wheat white pizza with swiss cheese topped with shrimp and tomatoes tossed in  balsamic vinegar (say that 9 times fast) the other day for lunch and it was HEAVENLY.

Here is the white sauce I made that was adapted from


2 tablespoons butter - I used a light "cardio spread"
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup milk  - I used fat free
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 an onion diced
2 tablespoons italian seasoning


In a small skillet sautee onion, garlic & italian seasoning with evoo until onion is tender.

Heat butter in a small saucepan. Add flour and stir until thoroughly mixed.

Slowly whisk in milk, adding gradually, whisk until it thickens. Mix in the onion, garlic & italian seasoning.

Spread on top of your favorite pizza crust. Top with cheese of your choice and any other toppings. The sauce makes enough for 2 large pizzas or 1 large if you want it a little thicker.
