The Best Cheese Pizza Recipe
Public Lives, Secret Recipes

Finding the right cheese combination in general can be a tricky task. After all, there are hundreds & hundreds of cheeses in the world. Finding the right cheese combination a white pizza is an even more complex task. So we took it upon ourselves to taste cheese after cheese (oh the struggle!) in order to find the 5 that taste best together for a white pizza recipe. After some extensive & delicious research we came up with what we & our taste testers believe is the best white pizza recipe out there!

Once we figured out the toppings we knew we wanted to keep the rest of the recipe simple & let the cheeses speak for themselves. With a bit of garlic & a splash of olive oil, our pizza was complete. You can use store-bought dough as we did for this recipe or use our recipe for homemade dough if you're feeling like a champ. We found this adorable pizza bike cutter that made the presentation totally stand out. Every time we us it the compliments are endless & everyone wants to know where it’s from! It comes in a wide variety of colors including this adorable leaf print! Plus it’s double wheel slicing method works like a charm & makes the pizza super simple for all to cut.
