Pizza - No Sauce

OK - been watching a new Pizza show on the Cooking network (Pizza Cuz) and decided this week's pizza night was going to be all sans sauce. Made five pizzas (homemade dough).  

First pizza was cooked sweet italian sausage, pulled pork, shredded pecorino romano and shredded mozzerella.  

Second pizza was all veggie - jalapeños, roasted red peppers, green bell peppers, ham (pieces from a naked ham smoked on the BGE last month, pulled from foodsaver bag).  

Third pizza was carmelized onions, tomatoes, bell peppers.

Fourth pizza was fresh arugula and proscuitto.

Fifth pizza was a basic pepperoni (put the whole thing in a foodsaver bag and right into the freezer).

Bon Appetit!

    Last time we made pizza, by mistake we left out the sauce and we really didn't miss the sauce??  We were suprised...

    @Mickey it was really really good.  The pizza is much crispier and not as wet - that was the Queen's comment - the kiddos didn't even notice.  I replace sauce with shredded romano to give some depth, I think that was helpful.  We will definitely do a pesto or white sauce next time.

    They look great!  :)  I'd love a piece of each one!

    I never use a traditional red sauce on my pizza's either for the same reasons you described --  The pizza is much crispier and not as wet.  
    I like to heat up crushed garlic & olive oil, brush that on the crust, add the cheese, and then the other toppings (& then usually more cheese).
    I also like to use pesto as a sauce as well as softened cream cheese.

    Now the cream cheese - I like that!  Thanks Kristi!

    My next pizza will have that "heated crushed garlic & olive oil" brushed on it for sure!!  Thanks, that sounds good to me!

    I rarely use sauce either.  Take a few or bunch of garlic cloves throw them in food processor with some parmesan and red pepper flakes then sprinkle over pizza, adds a nice kick.
