Cheese Sauce Recipe | How to Make Domino’s Style Cheese Burst Sauce

cheese sauce recipe to make cheese sauce for toast, pizza and nachos

Cheese sauce is one of my favorite items and I often make a small cupful of it. I use it to make a quick snack such as tortilla pizza or open faced cheese toast. It works great for garnishing stuffed bell peppers or stuffed tomatoes. Add some hot sauce to it and you have a delicious dip for nachos. Or just use the cheese sauce for fries. Its taste is quite intriguing and compliments the spiciness of the savories. It has a very slight tinge of sweet and you will know why once we get to the recipe. I have always adored the idea of gooey, melty cheese, like the one that Domino’s stuffs it in their Cheese Burst Pizza. However, I find its texture a bit floury and the aftertaste bitter-ish. This cheese sauce recipe is made in microwave, has no flour in it and is adapted from Domino’s’ but it’s only better.

The best thing about adding cheese sauce to your pizzas and open sandwich toasts is that it doesn’t dry out like processed cheese upon baking or grilling in the oven. Cheese sauce is a great option if you do not get fancy cheese and don’t like processed cheese a lot. You get a nice, golden sear on the cheese sauce upon baking.

You can check out the recipes of pizza and sandwich where I have used cheese sauce and the results have been super-yum!

So let’s see now how to make this creamy, glossy, melty cheese sauce.

      I wouldn’t recommend that. With time, the sauce thickens a lot. If you reheat t, the fats will separate and the sauce will lose its texture. Making it fresh every time is a good idea because it takes just a few minutes.

      Hi Rasika. Cheese sauce can be used to make cheese-burst pizza. I like to use as a garnish for elote, for some sandwich recipes too, because it has a very different taste than just cheese. Also, it has a melty textute, which works well for certain recipes. I hope this helps. 🙂

      You can use it on pizza but drizzle it on top before baking like regular cheese. Applying it directly on the base is not a good idea. Take a look at the veg pizza recipe where I have used this sauce. I have used tortilla, you can use regular pizza base too. – https://www.flavouroma.com/blog/veg-pizza-recipe/
