Ingredients:

(6 servings)

  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 cup of full-fat milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese

We have already revealed a lot about what this Garlic Parmesan Sauce recipe is really about. Still, there is plenty to discover.

Besides being flexible in pairing with probably any meal there is, this recipe is very adaptive. You can get playful and add some herbs like basil or chives to create a flavor twist. You can even go as far as adding some wine if you’re hosting an adult party.

Flavorful and tender sauce without much effort. Is there anything better?

Let’s see how we make it.

Step 1:

Heat some butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Add minced garlic once the butter melts and starts to sizzle. Fry it for about a minute.

Step 2:

Add flour and whisk it on low heat until it’s well combined.

Step 3:

Gradually pour the milk and whisk vigorously. Make sure there are no lumps and whisk in the chicken broth for a nice flavor. Simmer the mixture for a couple of minutes until it thickens.

Step 4:

Add shredded Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook until the cheese melts and the sauce reaches your desired consistency. If you like it thicker feel free to add more cheese, but don’t overdo it.

Pro tip: the sauce will further thicken once it cools. Keep this in mind while you let it simmer, as it will get thicker. If it ends up too thick just add a splash of broth.

This perfect creamy Garlic Parmesan Sauce that tastes just like the original Domino’s is ready.

Ingredient Substitution

With simple recipes like this, it might seem there is not much room for experimenting. But you can make certain twists and additions for a slightly different flavor.

Feel free to try different types of cheese like cheddar or mozzarella, or add a few red pepper flakes to spice things up.

Here are the best ingredient substitutions to slightly twist the taste of the garlic Parmesan sauce.

Cornstarch

Though it’s better to stick with the all-purpose flour for this recipe for thickening purposes, you can also try some gluten-free alternatives like cornstarch.

However, don’t add cornstarch directly to the hot milk as it will clump and get a raw taste. Instead, mix a bit of cold water to create a slurry and only then add this mixture to the hot liquid.

Water

Yes, it’s not a mistake — if you don’t have chicken broth at hand, water is a decent substitute. However, you may want to add a few more seasonings like dried herbs, salt, or pepper to mimic the full flavors of the chicken broth.

You surely have this on hand for your other recipes regardless of what you’re cooking: sauce, stew, or soup!

Heavy cream

Not a fan of milk? Use heavy cream instead. It will make your garlic Parmesan sauce luxuriously creamy.

However, keep in mind that the cream has much more fat than milk. You’ll have to dilute it first: replace the amount of milk with half heavy cream and half water and you’re good to go.

What to Serve with Domino’s Garlic Parmesan Sauce

The main secret about this Garlic Parmesan Sauce? No dish won’t taste exceptional when paired with it.

You can still freeze it, but make sure to use an airtight container wrapped in the first layer of plastic wrap and a second layer of foil. In this case, don’t forget to let it thaw completely in the fridge before reheating.
