After reading the reviews, I cheated and used purchased pizza dough from New Seasons. I thought it came out just ok. Hubby, surprisingly, liked it more than I did. Adding red pepper flakes really helped. I will make this again but it isn't my favorite CL pizza recipe.
I spent a good amount of time on this recipe, and can honestly say it was wasted. The crust is just awful, too dense and hard. I anticipated it would be heavier than average with the whole wheat flour, but it was not edible. The toppings were good, albeit the mint was overpowering. We threw the whole thing away and ordered pizza.
The dough used for this recipe was terrible (it's the same dough that is used for the Shrimp Panzanella and Broccoli, Cheddar and Ranch Chicken Calzones). I knew it would be sturdier than normal pizza dough because of the white whole wheat flour but this was way too dense. The croutons I made for the panzanella with the reserved portion of the dough were rock hard and almost inedible. I make some sort of homemade pizza dough a couple times a month so I'm pretty confident I didn't mess it up. The ricotta and veggie topping was really good though - light and flavorful, with a good balance of textures. If I were to make this again I'd use my standard pizza dough recipe instead, but all the same toppings as the recipe. Or maybe swap out 1/2 of the white whole wheat flour for regular all purpose flour to lighten up the texture.
It is a tasty pizza. Could use more garlic and a little salt but a great summer recipe.
