Pizza Pizza! Muffin Tin Monday

I've mentioned before that we live too far out for pizza delivery to be an option, but honestly, that's a good thing.  Because I can make my own pizza which is so much cheaper and healthier.
This was the first time I've made pizza with a white sauce.  We usually do the typical red sauce, or sometimes pesto sauce.  I made the alfredo sauce from scratch, because there is nothing nastier than alfredo sauce from a jar (it's just awful!).  Toppings were mozzarella cheese, fresh mushrooms, and turkey bacon.  Not the healthiest pizza I've ever made (still healthier than Pizza Hut I'm sure!), but it was delicious.  Sides were a salad (once again, rejected by Pierce) and apple slices.  The pizza and apples were devoured.

Check out more fun food ideas at Muffin Tin Mom.

That white sauce sounds good! I will have to remember that next time I make pizza!

I've never had pizza with white sauce before!

Samantha said...

That pizza looks great..think I'll make pizza for dinner!

Christina said...

We love homemade pizza around here. We like it a lot better than delivery (even though that's yummy, too lol). We sometimes mix a little pesto sauce into our alfredo (or red sauce, but we usually make a white pizza with mozzarella, tomato, and basil. YUM!).

Valerie said...

That pizza does look delicious! We live close enough to go out for pizza, but we almost always opt for homemade instead. It is way better that anything we could get at a restaurant.
(Talk to you soon) :)

Carolyn said...

Now this is a muffin tin my daughter would be all over!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

You have creative muffin tins!

Tina Lane said...

Ooh, that does look good. While we have a few small town pizza joints to choose from we prefer home made. It is sooo much better.

Your combo sounds delish.

Misty said...

an unhealthy pizza every now and then is ok... ADORIBLE muffin cups, as always.LOVE the mushrooms!

Marissa @Life On Our Side Of The Mountain said...

Look at those cute little mushrooms! I've never heard of using white sauce for pizza...my kids would love that!

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

Looks great to me!!! I tried Alfredo sauce from a jar only once--and I won't buy it again. Maybe it depends on the brand, but the kind I had was also awful.

I am awaiting the day when Pierce finally eats some salad. You may need to throw a party. :)

Chatty Crone said...

Homemade Alfredo sauce! Wow. sandie

Angela said...

The pizza looks really good Lisa! It's lunch time and I'd love to give it a try. I've never had pizza with white sauce.

Kim said...

I'm so glad to hear that you use fruit as a side. My kids rarely eat vegetables so I always have grapes or apples or oranges as a backup. My husband would agree with you about jarred alfredo.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi There, We are home from our trip. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

I always love hearing about your creative Muffin Tin Monday posts. That pizza looks delicious.

Hugs,
Bets

Helene said...

Your pizza looks 1000 times better than any store-bought pizza!!! It really does look delicious! I never thought to use alfredo sauce instead of pizza sauce!

Dawn said...

Pizza has to be the best food in the world! Homemade even better. One day he'll eat the salad....one day:)

Loretta said...

The pizza looks and sounds delicious. Surprisingly my girls love salad, they will actually ask for it. As long as they have some Ranch to dip it in.

Shell said...

My oldest would be thrilled with a white sauce pizza. He doesn't like red sauce on anything!

Andrea (ace1028) said...

Yum. I'm not a big alfredo sauce fan, but I'd bet yours is delish. :) I do love me some pizza. Almost any kind, so YUM!

Out on the prairie said...

one of the earlier meals I learned to make. A roomie worked in a shop and taught us all how to make a pie. We took turns each Sunday making our creations.I cook them on my grill in the summer.

LOVE MELISSA:) said...

Your pizza looks divine! I look pizza!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Turkey bacon? Ummm, no. But you are a mother of young children, so you are allowed to be healthy. :)

All looks good. What can "we" do to get Pierce to eat salad?

Michaele said...

Dang that looks good! I would much prefer the white sauce. Sometimes the red is sweet and I don't like that.

Farmchick said...

Once again a lovely display and I would have eaten the whole thing.

Jen said...

That pizza looks awesome! We eat pizza once a week here, unfortunately it's not homemade like yours.

Katie @Pinke Post said...

I've never bought alfredo sauce in a jar because it just looks gross. I need the real thing. I have used ranch dressing as a white sauce on pizza also. Very yummy. As always I love muffin tin mondays!

Debbie said...

i could not live without pizza...coal fired is my newest obsession!!

they make a pesto one with garlic, tomatoes and basil. it is to die for!!

my 28 year old son still won't eat salad!!

Slamdunk said...

Looks great Lisa. The Mrs. loves home-made pizza with mushrooms.

An Irish Italian Blessing said...

OMG The animal plates are too cute!! The pizza looks pretty darn good :)

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

I must hang my head down in shame....I've never had white pizza. But looking at yours, I think I may have devoured the whole deal....pizza, salad and apples.
