Yummy White Pizza~

Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend.  We spent much of it in the gym watching our daughter coach her 12 year old volleyball team.  They ended up tied for 3rd.  Not bad for the first time on the court this season.

Busy weekends like this call for some simple, fast meals.  We decided to try something a bit different than our usual homemade pizza with marinara sauce.  We went with a White Pizza instead.  We found this recipe on myrecipes.com, it had been featured in Cooking Light awhile back.  It was super easy and soooo yummy.


1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese

1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

1 (1-pound) Italian cheese-flavored pizza crust (such as Boboli)

1 cup thinly sliced fresh basil

1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots

1/2 cup finely chopped spinach

1/2 to 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup thinly sliced plum tomatoes


Preheat oven to 425°.

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Spread cheese mixture over pizza crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Sprinkle with basil and next 6 ingredients (basil through garlic powder). Arrange plum tomato slices in a single layer on top. Place pizza on baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Remove pizza to cutting board; cut into 6 slices.

Prior to baking, yummy fresh ingredients.

Golden brown perfection!

Oh so yummy!

If you are in the mood for a yummy pizza, this is a must try!
