Rosemary White Sauce
« on: December 12, 2013, 01:23:25 AM »
I was curious if anyone has a recipe for a Rosemary White Sauce (or even your favorite White Sauce) that you have tried and are very happy with? Perhaps there is a link on this forum or is there a website that you can recommend?

I was at a favorite Pizzeria in town and had the Rosemary Yukon Gold Potato Pizza Special. Although i do not have this Wood Fire oven at home, I plan to give this pizza a try. i know what cheeses go on the pizza and how to pre-bake the potatoes, but I am looking for ideas on the Rosemary White Sauce. Thank you in advance for any help on this.

PS
I can find many recipes on the web, but i am interested in recipes that you have tried, really like, and would use again. Thanks!

If need be, I can purchase the same Alfredo sauce that I used on my Lobster pizza, but I would like to hear from people.

The lobster pie looks great.  I could eat those langoustines like popcorn.  I'd love to see more about this rosemary/potato pizza when you figure it out.

First thing that came to my mind was a flavored bechamel. I googled and found this- https://food52.com/recipes/12977-quinoa-stuffed-kohlrabi-over-lemon-rosemary-bechamel

Thanks Jeff!!!

I found this article from the Los Angeles Times printed on Mar 25, 2009. The white sauce recipe looks pretty good.

I am thinking that the above recipe needs some Romano and Parmesan cheese for the extra flavor. IMO

(or even your favorite White Sauce)
Tom, my favorite white sauce is used for my white pizza which I recreated from a visit to Pupatella's Neapolitan pizza in Arlington, VA, which has the Italian cream sauce, spinach, roasted red bell peppers, pine nuts and feta.  The sauce is :  melt about 6 tablespoons butter and lightly sauté two minced garlic cloves.  Lower heat and add 3/4 cup Asiago shredded cheese, 1 cup of cream, salt and pepper.  It is spread on the skin first, then topped with spinach or arugula, peppers, pine nuts and feta.  It has gotten really good reviews.  Mark

Tom, Make a white sauce! I use = weights of butter and flour, cook in a heavy pot till you arrive at the color you want, whisk frequently, for a white sauce, cook, but not past a white color or maybe just past. I add cold 1/2 & 1/2 slowly, whisking continuously until the sauce thickens. Oh, I use 1 cup of liquid with 1 tbs butter and 1 tbs flour. ( but I weigh the butter and flour). I add freshly ground white pepper to the rue, it kills the taste of the flour. Add salt to taste. After that white sauce is made you can add any flavor, herb, spice, vegtable, meat base, etc you want. Of course add cheese for a cheese sauce. You can use EVOO or pan drippings (fat) in place of butter.
