Who wants a slice of this Garlic Onion, and Spinach Pizza with White Sauce? This delicious pizza is made with a fluffy pizza dough topped with a creamy white sauce and layered with fresh garlic, red onion, spinach, and cheese. This pizza can be whipped up in 1 hour or less including rising time!
I made my own pizza dough but if you are short on time you can buy the pizza dough premade at your grocery store. You can find premade dough in the freezer section as well. If you are gluten-free look for a gluten-free crust.
TIPS WHEN MAKING YOUR PIZZA DOUGH
- To make this pizza dough you only need 6 ingredients, flour, water, oil, yeast, salt and sugar. You can also add additional dried herbs to flavor your dough.
- In a small bowl mix the warm water and yeast and set aside. The yeast should start to foam after 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to make your water too warm or you can damage the yeast. If your yeast doesn’t foam it might be bad. I recommend dumping it out and trying again.
- You do not need to use a stand mixer to make this dough. You just need your good ole hands to knead the dough into a ball. This dough does not require a ton of kneading but just enough to make sure the dough forms into a large ball around 3-5 minutes.
- After kneading the dough you will place it in an oiled bowl and cover it with a linen towel. Place the bowl in a dark and warm area for about 35-45 minutes. I usually place it in the pantry where there is minimal light. The yeast in the dough will rise, almost doubling in size. If you have additional time, you can let your dough rise for even longer.
- If for some reason your dough doesn’t rise, there is something wrong with your yeast. But no worries, the pizza will still taste wonderful. You just won’t have as much dough since it did not double in size.
ROLLING OUT DOUGH
Rolling out your dough is so much fun! You can make one giant pizza, make two large pizzas, or make four mini pizzas. I just recommend placing parchment paper under the dough so it doesn’t stick to the surface. I rolled the dough thicker since I wanted a fluffy crust.
Make sure to leave the edges of your dough slightly thick and only roll or stretch the middle of the dough. It is up to you on how thick or thin you will want your pizza. To make sure your dough does not bubble gently, poke the middle of your pizza with a fork multiple times.
You can be very creative when it comes to the toppings for this pizza. For this pizza I used garlic, red onion, spinach, and cheese.
Below are some other great toppings to add to your pizza :
Bake pizza at 450 degrees fahrenheit (232 C) 10-12 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Take baked pizza out, turn your oven on to broil. Melt your butter and brush the melted butter on top of the crust. Place the pizza back in the oven for 2 minutes until the crust is golden. Make sure that your pizza is only in the oven at broil for a couple minutes or the pizza will burn.
For the pizza sauce I used No-Dairy White Pizza Sauce. It is super creamy and flavorful. This vegan pizza sauce doesn’t have any added sugar, soy or canola oil. You can recreate this pizza by stopping by Whole Foods where this BRAND NEW White Pizza Sauce is being exclusively sold.

Garlic, Onion, and Spinach Pizza with White Sauce
This pizza is made with a fluffy pizza dough topped with a creamy white sauce and layered with fresh garlic, red onion, spinach, and cheese.
- 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour substitute with whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp sugar, I used cane sugar
- 1 tsp of active dry yeast or 1/2 packet of yeast
- ½ cup of warm water 105° -110° fahrenheit.
- ½ Tbsp of olive oil
- ½ tsp of salt
- 1 Tbsp olive oil for the dough + 1 tsp to grease bowl
- ⅓ cup white pizza sauce
- 1 to 2 cups of dairy-free mozzarella cheese, add more for a cheesier pizza
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 3/4 cup fresh spinach, chopped
- ⅓ cup red onion, sliced thinly
- ½ tsp of crushed red pepper (optional)
- 1 tsp butter, melted, this is for the crust
- In a small bowl mix the warm water and yeast and set aside. The yeast should start to foam after 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to make your water too warm or you can damage the yeast. If your yeast doesn’t foam it might not be bad. I recommend dumping it out and trying again.
- In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, and salt together. Slowly pour the yeast water and 1 tablespoon of olive oil with the dry ingredients and mix until a soft dough has formed.
- Knead the dough for 3-5 minutes forming it into a ball. Add an additional tablespoon of water if your dough is too dry.
- Place the dough in an oiled glass bowl. Cover the dough with a kitchen linen and place in a dark and warm place for 1 hour. Allowing the dough to rise, almost doubling in size.
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F (232 C). Once the dough has risen, punch the dough. Prep your counter for rolling your dough. You can do this by cleaning it or laying a large piece of parchment paper down.
- Roll out the dough using your hands or a rolling pin. If you notice the dough is sticking, add half teaspoon of olive oil to the surface. You want to leave the edges of the dough thicker than the middle of the pizza. See the tip section for more details.
- Place the rolled out dough with the parchment paper directly on a large baking pan. If you do not have parchment paper, spray your pan with oil.
- Spread an even layer of white sauce on top of the dough. Then layer it with garlic, red onion, spinach and cheese. Bake the pizza for 10-12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
- Take the baked pizza out, turn your oven on to broil. Melt your butter and brush the melted butter on top of the crust. Place the pizza back in the oven for 2 minutes until the crust is golden. Eat and enjoy!
- Substitute the flour with whole wheat flour.
- Don’t have a round pan? Make a rectangle size pizza, it still is pretty and taste as yummy as the round pizzas.
- Add additional veggies to your pizza, some of my favorites are artichoke hearts, kale, and mushrooms.
