White Pizza


I often make pizzas at home and when I don’t have time to make my own pizza dough, I use the store bought pizza crust. It works just as well.


My hubby and I both enjoy pizzas with lots of cheese. :-D But when we order a take-out or delivery, it really is very greasy and makes us very guilty later. Making pizzas at home, lets me control what goes into the pizzas…we get to indulge, but on our terms.


Pizzas usually come with a tomato based sauce, to make something different I chose to use Ricotta cheese.



White Pizza:

Adapted from Rachel Ray’s recipe


1 store bought pizza dough

Extra- virgin olive oil, for drizzling

1 ½ cups part skim Ricotta

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 Onion, thinly sliced

2 cups shredded mozzarella

1 tsp Red Chilli flakes

1 sp Dried Basil

Salt and Black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Stretch pizza dough on a baking sheet or pizza pan to form a pie. Pierce the dough with the tines of a fork in several places. Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil around the crust. Mix the ricotta cheese, chilli flakes, garlic, salt and black pepper. Taste the mixture at this point and adjust seasoning accordingly.


Spread the ricotta evenly across the dough. Top the pizza with the sliced onions and the mozzarella. Bake until crispy, 20 minutes. Top the white pizza pie with the dried basil and serve.

The Ricotta ‘sauce’ base was very different and the garlic packed a punch to it. I’m glad we tried this one.
