This creamy, cajun garlic pizza sauce is the perfect pizza base sauce for almost any pizza to add a little spicy kick of flavor.


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


  1. Melt the butter on a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the garlic and cook briefly for about 30 seconds. Don't let the garlic brown.
  3. Add in the flour, red pepper flakes, Cajun seasoning and salt. Whisk everything together.


  • Use the sauce immediately or let it cool completely and then store it in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to a week.
  • If you want a cajun garlic pizza sauce that is more liquidy, use a bit less flour and add more milk to get the consistency you want.
  • This recipe makes about enough sauce for two pizzas. The nutrition information is based on the amount of sauce required for one whole pizza (1/4 cup).
