White Pizza Lasagna.
I’m in the middle of this salad love affair thing at the moment.
I know. Odd.
But don’ freak out – I think you all know what kind of salads I like to eat. The vegetableless kind. Or the kind with the fewest vegetables possible. The kind with lots of cheese and chips and bacon and cheese. I have another one coming your way and, well… it feels like a copout but is just so darn good.
So it makes complete sense that I want something hearty and soul warming. Right? That’s how I’m justifying it. That’s how I’m justifying that I made freaking lasagna in the SUMMER. Time consuming, cheesy comfort food that takes an hour or more. In the summer.
Also, this lasagna was a complete rip off of my white pizza dip. You know, the dip that four of us ate in one sitting? Yeah. That. I freaking love that stuff. I freaking love those flavors.
I also made it because lasagna isn’t a frequent meal around here… whatsoever. If you’ve been reading along then you may know that italian food is my least favorite cuisine due to my lack of love for tomato sauce. And then there is this whole thing where my husband claimed that he hated ricotta cheese, blah blah blah, but over the last few years he’s accidentally eaten so much of it that the argument no longer stands.
Marriage secret: trick your spouse into eating things.
This might be the worst time ever to share lasagna, after all so many of my Junes have been consumed with graduation parties and the standard rigatoni, lasagna and fried chicken that I am over anything even remotely close to that. BUT! It may also be the best time. It works for Sunday dinners and you can even just prep a big pan and freeze some leftovers and have a meal in a minute. Or ten.
This big dish of love is made with whole wheat lasagna noodles, my favorite roasted grape tomatoes, tons of garlic and basil and oodles of cheese. We are talking, like – tons of cheese. Tons of different cheeses. It’s a total cheese fest.
Get on board.
White Pizza Lasagna
- 4 pints grape tomatoes, halved
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 12 whole wheat lasagna noodles
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 2 1/2 cups whole milk
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 ounces mascarpone cheese
- 4 ounces freshly grated mozzarella cheese
- 4 ounces freshly grated provolone cheese
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 12 ounces freshly grated fontina cheese, separated into 4 equal portions
- 1/2 cup freshly chopped basil
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Add tomatoes to a nonstick baking sheet and toss with salt, pepper and olive oil. Roast for 20 minutes, until the tomatoes are slightly bursting – yes, they will sort of burst even though they are cut in half. Once finished, remove and set aside until ready to use. I found it was easiest to “divide” them (with a spatula) into three equal portions on the baking sheet.
- While tomatoes are roasting, prepare water for the lasagna noodles and boil according to directions – only halfway since they will cook in the oven.
- Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat and add butter. Whisk in flour to create a roux, cooking for 1-2 minutes until golden. Add in milk and stir constantly until slightly thickened, then reduce heat to medium-low and add mascarpone, garlic, mozzarella and provolone. Continue to stir until cheese sauce is creamy and melty. Add in oregano, thyme, salt and pepper.
- To assemble lasagna, place three noodles on the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Cover in roasted tomatoes, a handful of basil, a handful of fontina cheese, then a few ladles of cheese sauce. Layer three more lasagna noodles on top. Repeat this two more times, finishing with four lasagna noodles on top. Cover those with remaining fontina and any extra cheese if it looks like it needs it. Ladle any extra sauce on top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until cheese on top is golden and bubbly. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving, so lasagna can kind of hold together.

I’m totally down with this lasagna!!!
The more cheese the better! This sounds amazing….pinning!
I love everything you post. And someday, I will actually make something you’ve posted lol.
White pizza is my favorite! I can’t imagine what a white pizza lasagna must be like!
What a great twist on lasagna!
This is beyond incredible!
Holy moly! This is amazeballs!
Probably the best looking lasagna ever!
this looks absolutely delicious!!! Can’t wait to make it!
I am allllll over this! Totally making in the next few weeks =)
Red sauce often turns my stomach with all the crazy acidity. I much prefer to get the acid from fresh tomatoes, it just seems better that way. This looks incredible!
I could just take a bite out of that last picture. Definitely will try this. Thanks!
That sounds divine! I’m such a glutton for cheesy things :-)
i’m on board! I’m so on board. I don’t think i can wait until Sunday to make this though.
ack, i think my comments are hitting your spam filter again :((
I love your comment about your husband! I sneak stuff into our dinners ALL the time – and just never tell. Can’t deal with picky eaters! My husband has eaten so much of the “hated food” and just hasn’t had a single clue!
How do you get a slice of lasagna to look that darn perfect in your pictures?!?!
for the lasagna pics for the blog, i always let the lasagna cool completely, then cut a slice and reheat! works perfectly for pictures. it’s one of the only food styling type things i do… because i’m lazy.
OMG- WOW! Drooling over here!
This looks AMAZING (minus the tomatoes, which can be easily omitted). Also – I agree about tricking your husband into eating things!
I need to get into a salad love affair. I’ve been saying I need to eat more salads for too long. But with recipes like this can you really blame me?

I am dyyyyyyying over this! We’ll be making white pizza lasagna come the weekend FO SHO.
I’m thinking an addition of carmelized onions (like my favorite white pizza has) would be awesome!

Oh my! I love white pizza so much, I bet this lasagna tastes incredible!
Thanks for the delicious recipe, I made it tonight and my family loved it. The only thing I added was roasted red and yellow peppers which I added in amongst the roasted tomatoes.
Thanks so much!
I made this for Father’s Day dinner. I added sliced zucchini and finely chopped kale. It was a huge hit! Thanks for another great recipe :)

Oooh, I love this idea! This looks delicious :D
I did not have Fontina cheese so I added extra 5 Italian cheese. Also added diced onion to my rue and add fresh spinach. Turned out really good. Will definitely make it again
Forgot also used home grown tomatoes instead of cherry

I accidentally grabbed no bake lasagna noodles… should I do anything differently? Add more liquid?
If that’s a whole wheat lasagna noodle I’ll, I’ll, eat it!
