White Pizza Sauce

We had a pizza party for the Packers/Cowboys game a week or so ago. I had 2 "regular type" pizzas and Jenna made this one. It was delicious! See her notes at the end.
White Pizza Sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or marjoram
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

In a heavy saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 or 6 minutes, or until translucent. Add the garlic and stir for 1 minute longer. Add the cream, lower the heat to medium-low, and cook for about 3 minutes, or until the cream thickens and reduces slightly.

Remove from the heat, stir in the thyme, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Let cool completely before using.

Jenna's Notes: We made a 17 inch pizza so I tripled this because the original recipe said it made 1/2 cup. I couldn't get the sauce to thicken, so I did make a thickener with flour and milk and added it to the boiling sauce. I did add 3 tablespoons of freshly grated parmesan cheese when I took the sauce off the heat.
