White pizzas help diversify your menu
By Jeremy White Photo Josh Keown

I

'll freely admit: I'm a
tomato guy. I love the
acidic, sweet, fresh flavor
of an heirloom tomato right
out of the garden. I equally
adore the deliciousness and
vibrancy a great tomato sauce
gives pizza. I'm pretty heavy
handed with the sauce when
I make pizzas for myself, so
when I fall in love with a
White Pie that means the
pizza maker really did something right and found a way to
infuse some positive flavor.
The first truly great white
pizza I ever encountered
was about 15 years ago at
Totonno's Pizzeria on Coney
Island. It was creamy, fragrant
and downright flavorful. In its
simplicity there was mastery. It set the bar for every
white pie I'd ever have going
forward.
And for many years I didn't
encounter a single white pizza
that came remotely close. Not
at the International Pizza
Challenge and not even at
some of the nation's landmark
pizza establishments. Then
I visited Mark Dym at his
pizzeria in Denver. There, at
Marco's Coal-Fired Pizzeria,
I had another "holy cow"
moment with a white pie. I
was blown away. I remember
telling him at the time, "You
might possibly have the best
white pie in America." I suspect he enjoyed hearing that.
Since that time I've had
some pretty darn good white

pies. I've even made some
decent ones myself in the PT
test kitchen. White pies travel
really well, too. And since
we're in the middle of a new
normal at the moment that is
heavily focused on carryout
and delivery as a result of the
COVID-19 pandemic, why
not add some to your menu?
Here's one I really like, and
we sneak some tomatoes on it
for color and to capture that
tomato flavor. Is that cheating?
