How to Make a White Pizza With Potatoes and Vegetables

Author:

I have enjoyed creating food and perfecting recipes in the kitchen since I was 10 years old. I prefer homemade over store-bought.

Pizza Without Tomato Sauce

Last night I was in the mood for pizza, but I didn't have tomato sauce of any kind. Looking at what food I did have, I decided to try out a white pizza. Instead of tomato sauce, it uses cheese as a base.

Note Regarding Prep and Cook Times

If you make your own pizza dough, more prep time is required. The above estimate is based on using a prepared unbaked crust.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium prepared crust
  • 2 to 4 ounces cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese
  • 1/4 cup peppers, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1/2 medium potato, diced
  • 1/2 cup broccoli, frozen or pre-cooked
  • 2 slices tomato, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon desired seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. If you have an unbaked pizza crust, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. If it is already baked, preheat to 400 degrees.
  2. Saute the peppers, onion, garlic, broccoli and chopped potato. Add tomato, and cook a little longer.
  3. Season the vegetables with your choice of seasoning. I used Adobo seasoning, but garlic powder, herbs, or even taco seasoning would taste great.
  4. If you are using an unbaked crust, place it on a pizza pan or cookie sheet for about 7 minutes; then take it out and let it cool off. Turn the temperature down to 400 degrees.
  5. Once the crust is cool, spread it with cream cheese.
  6. Add cooked potatoes and vegetables.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley.
  8. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  9. Pop back into the oven for about 12 minutes, until cheese is melted
  10. Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on the pizza and serve. Enjoy!

This pizza looks delicious! I love tomatoes, but they make me really sick sometimes. It's nice to see a pizza recipe that doesn't use tomato sauce.

Pizza is a very versatile dish... you can add anything you like or anything you've got on hand. Imagination is the limit! It's interesting in that there are potatoes in it. Will try your white pizza recipe as well as your taco pizza. Thanks for sharing. :)

Claudia Mitchell on January 09, 2014:

This looks awesome Kathryn. My daughter is really into making her own pizzas right now. She's an extremely picky eater. I will definitely be showing her this as she likes potatoes and I doubt she's ever thought about putting them on her pizza. Thanks. Pinned.

Deborah Neyens from Iowa on January 09, 2014:

This looks delicious. We make homemade pizza all the time. I will pin this recipe and try it!

Have a wonderful day, and I hope the first week of your new year is going well.

WND, It is yummy! I have heard of it before, but didn't think of it until I was out of tomato sauce. Having to work with what I have has been a very creative experience for myself.

Thanks for reading and commenting, and have a great day.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 08, 2014:

Vicki, You're welcome, and thanks for being interested in it to begin with! It is more motivating to post an article when I know others will definitely be interested.

When I thought of making a white pizza, I was delighted with the idea of a white pizza. I had never made one before. And since I love potatoes, adding them seemed natural. I'm glad I did, because they added a very nice flavor, and made it more substantial.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do when you try it. This makes me want another one!

Thanks for reading and commenting, and have a fantastic day.

This looks like a nice twist on the standard pizza. Very creative and fun.

How interesting. I never heard of white pizza. It sounds yummy and would be a nice change from the other.

Victoria Lynn from Arkansas, USA on January 06, 2014:

Thanks for putting this hub together for Susan and me. LOL! Now I can pin it for future reference. I love a white pizza for a change. I like the idea of potatoes and broccoli on pizza. Neat! OH, and tomatoes are so tasty on pizza, too. I'm looking forward to trying this.

Crystal Tatum from Georgia on January 06, 2014:

This looks delicious! Pinning this to try.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 06, 2014:

Nate,

You're welcome. If you try it, I hope you enjoy. Sometime in the future I would like to try other types of white pizza, but this one is decadently delicious! I love cream cheese, and it goes very well with veggies and parsley.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a wonderful day.

Nathan Bernardo from California, United States of America on January 06, 2014:

This looks like a delicious alternative to pizza with tomato sauce. I actually prefer a creamier sauce to a red sauce anyway, so I'm sure I'll love this pizza with cream cheese. Thanks for sharing this great idea, I'll have to give it a try.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 06, 2014:

M K Paul,

Pizza is a great thing to make at home! I have made it many times over the past 2 years or so, and have never looked back since.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a wonderful day!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 06, 2014:

Kidscrafts,

I agree with you! It is so nice to add whatever toppings you want, and however much. You can make your own custom pizza, all of the way!

You're welcome, and thanks for taking the time to read and comment. Have a great day!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 06, 2014:

Suzie,

I especially get creative when I run out of some of my normal food staples. One thing I like about making things homemade is that it doesn't matter if I don't have a premade crust or bread, I can make it myself!

This pizza was an interesting one to make. I like to make my own crust, and discovered the oven doesn't have to be preheated for as long as I usually have it. This crust came out pretty crispy, but the pizza cooked quickly. I like trying out different ways of cooking things.

This pizza tasted even better than I thought it would. And I already have an idea for another pizza. I can hardly wait to try it out.

I hope you like the pancakes! I like making pancakes of all kinds, and I have ideas for more versions, as well.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my page and comment, and I hope you are doing okay.

You're welcome, and thanks for the share, vote and pin.

Take care, my friend.

M K Paul from India on January 06, 2014:

It looks just delicious! I must say that I love homemade pizza because you can add as many vegetables as you want! Thanks for sharing!

Suzanne Ridgeway from Dublin, Ireland on January 06, 2014:

Hi Kathryn,

You always come up with unique recipe ideas and this sounds and looks scrummy! I have still to make a homemade pizza but will look for some bases tomorrow when shopping after this tasty idea. I am also going to do your pancakes this week just need the eggs. Thanks for another great share. Votes, shared and pinned all the way my friend.

I love adding veggies to my pizza!

Thanks for showing your interest by reading and commenting, and I hope you have a wonderful week.

Susan,

Like I said, you and Vicki were the ones that caused me to decide not to put it off. And thanks again for the photo advice. It worked out very well!

Thanks for taking the time to check this out and comment, and have a fabulous day!

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 06, 2014:

Faith,

I didn't hear about a white pizza until my sister-in-law had some a few years ago when I lived with her and my brother for a few months. She didn't like pizza with tomato sauce, so when she ordered pizza, it was a white pizza. I don't think all of these have the same white topping, though. I think other cheeses can be used. But this one hit the spot.

I used potatoes on mine for the first time a few months ago, and liked it. I really like potatoes, and I already know the combination of potatoes and veggies is good. It works well, and is something a little different!

You're welcome. It has been fun working with the ingredients I have to create interesting meals. It's almost easier than creating meals when I have a huge supply of food, because then I have so many options I'm not always quite sure what I want.

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for gracing my page with your presence.

~ Kathryn

Susan Zutautas from Ontario, Canada on January 06, 2014:

So glad that you posted the recipe for this. When I saw it on FB I had to know how to make it :) Looks delicious!

Faith Reaper from southern USA on January 05, 2014:

I have never heard of a white pizza or one without sauce! And for that matter, one with potatoes. I think you have created a one of a kind pizza here. Thanks for sharing how to be creative with what you have on hand. Up and nore. Blessings, Faith Reaper

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 05, 2014:

Ruby,

You're welcome! Even a pizza with only cheese and veggies is filling and tasty.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, and have a wonderful night.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on January 05, 2014:

I like the idea of a meatless pizza and yours looks delicious. Thank you for sharing...

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 05, 2014:

Careermommy, I added a link to your roasted potato and pepper recipe! Those veggies are all on this pizza, so anyone that likes the potatoes and peppers on it are likely to enjoy your recipe.

Kathryn (author) from Windsor, Connecticut on January 05, 2014:

Careermommy,

Thanks. It was the result of having limited food. I had to come up with something that used food I actually had! I can be creative when my supply gets lower than usual!

I appreciate that you took the time to read and comment, and I hope you have a wonderful night.

~ Kathryn

Tirralan Watkins from Los Angeles, CA on January 05, 2014:

Hi Kathryn, I must say that you are full of unique recipes. This one sounds delicious. I think a cookbook is in order.
