Tomato Alfredo Pizza

I mentioned a few days ago that I've been making pizza every Friday. As I prepare my menu for the week, I go directly to Stephanie Cooks. Here, my friend Stephanie has an incredible pizza variety and I have bookmarked nearly all of them. Do yourself a huge favor and go check out her pizza collection.

This honestly tasted like a gourmet pizza. My husband and I inhaled the whole thing and, I must confess, I would have eaten more had there been any.

(Disregard the photo - I snapped some pics but then ended up baking it again for another minute or two and forgot to take new pictures.)

Tomato Alfredo Pizza
from Stephanie Cooks
  • Pizza crust
  • 1/2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 tbsp. flour
  • 3/4 cup skim milk (or cream if you don't want to take the light approach)
  • 1/4 cup pecorino romano cheese
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce (I used sliced tomatoes instead)
Preheat the oven to 450. Stretch out the pizza dough on your stone or pan and bake for 7 minutes.

In a small saucepan melt the butter. Add the flour, stirring until it forms a paste.

Pour in the milk, stirring constantly.

Bring to a low boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Once the sauce is somewhat thick, add the romano cheese, stirring well.

Cover the pizza crust with the alfredo sauce and add sliced tomatoes if using.

Top with the mozzarella cheese. Drizzle the tomato sauce over the cheese.

Bake 10-12 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the crust is crisp.


  1. Sounds delicious! Homemade pizza every Friday is a fantastic idea.

  2. I can't wait to give this a try! Over the winter we were making our own pizza every Saturday night. We haven't since the weather warmed up, but the idea of using fresh tomatoes sounds delicious enough that we'll have to break out the pizza stone again!
