JD and I don't remember too many family traditions of our childhoods. There were no regular vacation spots or nightly singalongs, no secret handshakes or yearly camping trips. The only thing we both remember is Friday night pizza. With a little family of our own now, we wanted to start our own tradition. Tonight, we kicked off the first official ourlastname Friday pizza night.
We made homemade dough, homemade white sauce, and built our pies skyhigh with cheese, artichoke hearts, pepperoni, and onions. My kitchen is a disaster zone, but oh how my big girl had fun.
White Pizza Sauce
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
1 c milk
1 clove garlic, smashed or pressed
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp basil
1/4 c parmesan cheese
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and flour. Whisk until smooth. Slowly add milk, whisking to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk together. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
