The Black Sheep Fay

Under a huge amount of goodness lies the black sheep Fay.  Out of my siblings, I do the dumb stuff.  I've skinned my knee on a high healed wobble home. I've made out with an Italian or two.  I've drank Belgian beers and professed love. My little sisters have looked at me and thought "is Lena on pills?". I go to confession.  But, when you are Irish Catholic your liver is half of your body and it's the fun half.  
But lets talk about today.  
Today I made a great pizza.  I was in a horrible mood.  The doctor told me to come back to see her because something was wrong.  She is a mean doctor and I am mad at her.  But, I must admire her contribution to my pizza.  Out of love and fear, I kneaded dough, made a perfect white sauce, and then made the best margarita pizza of my life (even though a margarita pizza has red sauce).  I channeled my darlings from Italy and thought "Why does buffalo mozzarella only live in one place? The place with attractive men. And why am I here with unattractive men and no Buffalo mozzarella".  Jezze Lena, MOVE.
If you want to make it at home and feel as cute and sad as myself:
1st make your dough, put love into it (if you are like me love is easy)
Chose your toppings (tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil ((after cooking the pizza add the basil)) are the recommendations)
Thats the easy part, here is what makes boyfriends and boys who do not deserve to be boyfriends keep coming back.  

The sauce:
2 tablespoons raw butter (or any butter that you like)
2 tablespoons flour
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup 1/2 and 1/2 
1/2cup or so Pecorino Romano
salt and pepper
Melt the butter, add garlic, stir, take out garlic, add flour, stir, add 1/2 and 1/2 and cheese, stir until melted. Season it. Kiss it, because thats amazing. And easy. Drink some red wine.  Put sauce on Pizza and bake at 400* for 12mins to 15mins or so with amazing toppings.
