Last year we had the first asparagus two weeks early and it was next to a pizza
This year, I spotted a recipe in Real Simple
that used ricotta; I had a bargain container of ricotta in the fridge and not one recipe in mind (of course, when I don't have ricotta, then I see tempting recipes including ricotta all the time).
I spread ricotta on the pizza dough, sprinkled on chopped garlic, asparagus, and parmesan.
At the table, we topped our slices with radish greens (recipe called for arugula) in a lemony vinaigrette. I have baked greens on pizzas before and that is good, but eating lightly dressed greens on top of the hot slice was a delightful contrast.
We will definitely do it again, maybe with a sprinkle of green olives too. This will be another ricotta trick: an easy, tasty white pizza.
We also had a traditional tomato sauce pizza with mushrooms.
And then I froze the rest of the ricotta - it can wait for the next white pizza.
Not sure you can freeze Ricotta......but your recipe looks really good.
I have frozen ricotta for a few years now - I thaw it and use it as normal, which for me, is usually in something baked. I freeze regular cheese too - that gets a little crumbly when it's thawed.
Delish!!! I love the idea of spreading ricotta on pizza. I've been into grilling our pizzas lately which adds such a nice, somewhat subtle, taste and texture.
mmmmm...glad to know you can freeze ricotta. i love a homemade pizza of all varieties. its our friday night ritual.
This is setting off a vicious craving for me. The farmers' market BETTER be open tomorrow and they MUST have asparagus!!!
I've had asparagus on the brain for the last two days. I love to grill it, but your pizza idea sounds heavenly.
What a yummy idea! I just can't wait for it to warm up so that our asparagus starts growing! And I'll be remembering this idea!
