White Pizza

This is one of my favorite ways to fix pizza! When I was growing up, I was not a fan of tomatoes or tomato products, so anytime I could order white pizza, I was all over it!

We usually have a once-a-week pizza night, and although my Hubby is a fan of more traditional pizza with lots of meat toppings, I think I need to convince him to let me make this every so often. It's so good!

White Pizza

your favorite pizza crust
1 cup part-skim ricotta
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella
2 Tbs grated parmesan
1 Tbs olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Mix the ricotta and garlic together in a small bowl. Place pizza crust on baking stone or pizza pan. Spread ricotta mixture over crust. Top with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Add additional toppings as desired. (My experience is to keep the toppings simple. My favorite is cooked and drained spinach!)

Drizzle olive oil over pizza toppings. Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your crust. Cool slightly before slicing.

That sounds really good! And the spinach as a topping sounds like something we would like. Maybe also some small pieces of grilled chicken breast?
