Best Easy Low Carb White Pizza/Pasta Sauce

Best Easy Low Carb White Pizza/Pasta Sauce

Spaghetti with white sauceThis is a crazy easy white sauce that you make in a blender - it has so many versatile uses, it's hard to name them. Just get adventurous and try making low carb “eggplant” lasagna or other baked dishes – like quiches, using it as a base sauce. Remember, just build the flavors from the base sauce. Like adding hot sauce for more of a “kick". Chopped fresh basil provides its own special intensity. I like to chop up some green onions and fresh rosemary too.

If you’re hesitant about messing up the batch of sauce, just measure out a tablespoon-full in a small bowl and drop in a pinch of the spices and/or other “add-ins” to taste. The proof is in the tasting you know. Also, adding different kinds of shredded pizza cheese – like Swiss in place of the mozzarella or parmesan - will give a distinct French flavor to a pizza or pasta sauce. Pop in some chopped bacon or ham and you’re good to go for a change. The ham and bacon are especially good with Swiss cheese.

Again, so simple when you know how to start out with a “master” recipe. This is a very thick sauce. You can whip up almost any white pizza/pasta sauce combo and thin it with some white wine or chicken broth to get the desired consistency you want when using with low carb pasta. At only 4 net carbs per ¾ cup it’s a low carb winner. Enjoy!
