Sweet roasted garlic & rosemary pizza

In this earthy pizza recipe, roasted garlic adds a sweet, caramelized flavor so you won't even miss the red sauce. For those of you who can't imagine pizza without the sauce, some crushed tomatoes will give you that classic taste. Either way, serve a slice with a glass of white wine for a gourmet take on a pizza dinner.
