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.
