Garlicky White Bean Sauce

This is an old standby for us--we most often use it as a base for pizza in lieu of tomato sauce and cheese. It also makes a tasty dip (you can roast the garlic if the bite of fresh garlic is a bit too much for you).

Garlicky White Bean Sauce
Makes a generous amount of topping for 1 pizza

1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
Juice of 1/2 lemon (or ~1TB of cider vinegar would work in a pinch)
2 TB olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper
Italian herbs, if desired (basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary...)

Put all ingredients except herbs in a blender and or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Taste and add more salt or lemon juice if needed. Stir in herbs if using. Refrigerate until ready to assemble pizza.
