White Sauce Pizza

This was just a last-minute, throw-it-together type of pizza that happened to rock our world during dinner time last night!  We had everything on-hand and with a quick google of "white pizza sauce" we had an amazing (and amazingly beautiful!) pizza on our hands.  And in our tums.  The white sauce made all the difference for me, but John still wanted regular pizza sauce on his half.

{What you need}
2 boxes Jiffy Pizza Crust mix 
(has anyone else discovered this gem yet????? I'm in LOVE.)
1 cup hot tap water

{white sauce}
2 Tablespoons butter
3 Tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tablespoons dried basil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (I get a big bag at Costco and use it all the time)
{from here}

2 cups cooked, chopped chicken breast, seasoned with salt and steak seasoning
1 cup pre-cooked bacon, diced
1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed enough to sprinkle on pizza
1/3 cup canned mushrooms
1 clove canned artichoke hearts
1-2 cups parmesan cheese

for the sauce:  Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat.  Add flour and stir until thoroughly mixed.  Gradually whisk in milk and blend, then add the rest of the sauce ingredients.  Will thicken upon standing.

Prepare the pizza crust according directions on the box.  Spread white sauce as liberally as you like over the crust.  Put desired toppings all over the sauced crust, just as you like it.  Sprinkle the cheese on top of all the toppings and bake according to crust box directions.
