In our household white pizza passes as a delicious vegetarian alternative to the 'real thing'.
For my favorite pizza experience we top the previously described crust with a simple tomato sauce, feta cheese, mozzarella, and an assortment of veggies and meats.
Tomato sauce (for ~4 pizzas):
Finely chop two cloves of garlic and add to 1 tablespoon of preheated olive oil, sautee until fragrant (~30 seconds). Add 6 ounces of tomato paste and 12 ounces of tomato sauce to the garlic, continue heating and stirring. Flavor with sugar and salt to taste. Sugar is a key ingredient here, unless you are using naturally super sweet tomatoes. When the sauce is simmering add 2 spoonful Parmesan cheese. You may wish to include some basil as well.
When your pizza dough is in the shape, its bottom sprinkled with corn meal or semolina, spread about 3 tablespoons of the sauce on the crust. Next add the cheeses and then the other toppings. The above slice had onions, red peppers, Kalamata olives, pepperoni, and hot Italian sausage (I squeeze out the raw sausage mix from one sausage and form little balls).
When you topped the pizza, brush the edge with olive oil and slide onto the top rack of your oven. Turn the oven on to 400°F. Rotate at ~12 minutes and brush the edges with olive oil again. Bake for ~10 minutes more, until the top is golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a cookie rack for a few minutes before slicing.
I often sprinkle the pizza with oregano and Parmesan cheese before serving:
