    This was so delicious! I made one exactly as the recipe and another with lots of veggies only - added thinly sliced red onion, marinated artichoke hearts, finely chopped tomatoes and chopped green onions. Both were excellent and a wonderful change from the red sauce pizza. Loved the smell as the sauce was cooking too! Adding to our rotation.

    This was really good. My husband thought it was too rich. It's definitely rich (hence the name), but I really liked it. I forgot to buy spinach so I made it without and it was still great. I bet artichokes would make a nice addition.

    I didn't really follow the recipe for the pizza itself, but saved it solely for the sauce recipe. The only three things I did a bit differently were: I cut it in half as full recipe would be too much for my needs (I'm single and only cook for myself), and I wanted to see if it could be made ahead and kept in the fridge for a day; I used garlic butter instead of butter and minced garlic as that's what I had handy; I didn't have fresh parsley so used 1/3 of the amount of dried parsley from a jar. Also I omitted the salt as parmesan cheese and the garlic butter tend to already have salt. Of course extra can be added later to taste if it's too bland. This is DEFINITELY a keeper, so simple! Even simmering just with the garlic butter and cream to reduce it, it smelled amazing! I also used a thawed homemade parbaked 8" pizza crust, which I had made ahead and frozen after parbaking, for a genuine fully from scratch pizza.

    This sauce is DELICIOUS!!!!! We use it on other pizzas as well, most recently with caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, mozzarella, and sliced grilled sirloin steak.

    This is a great pizza. You can only make a tomato based pizza so many times before you get tired of it. This is a great way to change up pizza night.

    This is so good, my card club girls loved it. I used half n half instead of cream, used a little corn starch to thicken.

    The alfredo sauce for this pizza is simply divine! Excellent pizza, even though I leave out the spinach & mushrooms.

    I thought this was excellent, and my husband liked it as well! I will definitely make it again.
