White Pizza

    Great way to cure a pizza craving. I used a whole wheat boboli crust, mixed the herbs & garlic powder into the ricotta & used only 1/2 cup of tomatoes. Definitely a keeper!

    I make a similar pizza but I do use the boboli pizza sauce sparingly and I add spinach, artichoke hearts, red and green peppers, sliced roma garden tomatoes, black olives, mushrooms, sometimes chopped chicken breast or turkey sausage and I sprinkle on the grated Italian cheese combo with parmesan, asiago and mozzarella. My family loves it, never tried it with ricotta before I may give that a try.

    Sounds more like margherita, no?

    This is a great pizza and it's super easy to put together. Instead of the Boboli crust, I chose a healthier crust that was available in my grocery store (fewer calories, less fat, more fiber). Fresh basil wasn't in season, so I used some that I'd dried from last year. With all the fresh spinach leaves, you don't really miss the fresh basil if it's not in there. I thought the pizza turned out great and we've made this at least twice. I think it's important to thinly slice the tomatoes and be sure to use romas so that the pizza doesn't turn watery. I also apply a very slight sprinkling of salt to the top of each tomato slice to draw out the water.

    My family loved this White Pizza. The combination of cheeses and spices were great! I will make again!

    We enjoyed this. Rather than using garlic powder, I sliced a clove of garlic into chips. I topped with a handful of extra mozzarella and parm. I used the basic pizza dough recipe from this website and it paired well. I used 1 tsp. red pepper, and it was a little spicy for my taste, but my husband likes it that way.

    I couldn't find Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese so used parmesan. Good taste and easy. Next time will cut down on the shallots and put some mozzarella cheese on top of the tomatoes. Baking for 10 minutes made it just luke warm. A definite repeat.

    This pizza was alright. I had to add some garlic salt, felt it was lacking a little.

    I really loved this pizza. I made it a little healthier by using whole wheat naan and less cheese. I am not sure why people thought this was bland because my pizza was full of flavor and will definitely make this more often! Great summer pizza with a glass of white wine...mmm! MAKE IT!

    This definitely needs salt. I also used fresh pizza dough instead of Boboli; and instead of garlic powder, I grated three cloves of garlic (a la Rachael Ray) into the ricotta mixture, to which I also added some salt. Also I only used one good-sized shallot and that seemed to be plenty. Oh, and salt. I'd make it again, though.

    This pizza was delish. It was so easy, using a Boboli crust. I did not pre-bake it, just layered it all on and popped it in the oven. I did add a couple of tablespoons of pesto to the ricotta mix, and topped that with thinly sliced garlic instead of using garlic powder. The leftovers re-heated well...can't wait to make this again. I could eat it every day.

    I added gorgonzola and replaced the shallots with red onion slices. It was very good and I will use it again.

    Hate to break it to all of you BUT "White Pizza" is just that. Absolutely NO Tomatoes or Tomato Sauce. The recipe, as written, is however very good.

    Made this for my girlfriend because she can't doesn't really like red sauce, and she loved it! I would suggest a bit less pepper and a bit more parm. cheese, but other than that it was really good. I'm making this again.

    Delicious. Easy and quick to make and it tastes great!

    Not our favorite, maybe less ricotta cheese.

    I added some shrimp to this pizza, excellent!

    I really liked this pizza and would make it again. However next time I won't be mixing those three cheeses together for the base as it was too difficult to spread evenly. Next time I would spread the ricotta, sprinkle mozz and top with parm. I used fresh oregano because I had it on hand. It was really good:)

  • jillyfett1 Posted: 02/04/13

    I used less fresh basil and only a little of the crushed red pepper and regular sweet onions instead of shallots. I also added rotisserie chicken and a bit more mozzarella on top. Loved it! I will definitely make this again. Will add green peppers and mushrooms next time...

    Yum. Probably one of my favorite CL pizza recipes so far, and we've tried a lot of them over the years. Bonus that it is meatless and that my 16 year old, who hates ricotta cheese, loved it too. I didn't combine the cheeses but spread the ricotta on the Boboli and then sprinkled the other cheeses on top. Adding to our regular rotation.
