Martha (Stewart) strikes again.

I don’t have many of her cookbooks, but I’m a regular on her site and appreciate her knack for beautiful recipes using simple ingredients.

Her ricotta pizza combines simple ingredients that come together in minutes – perfect for weeknight dinners or those Friday nights when take-out is calling your name.

If you regularly read my blog, you know I have a little obsession with tortilla crust pizzas, but you can use whatever you prefer! Serve the pizzas with simply dressed greens or roasted vegetables.

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Crusts (tortillas, pre-made crusts, french bread, pita)
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Red Onion, sliced thin
  • Mushrooms, roughly chopped
  • Hard cheese like parmesan or romano
  • Greens like arugula, spinach, or kale cut into ribbons

Steps:

  • Prep crust if necessary (I always bake my tortilla first to get it a little crispy and then top)
  • Spread with ricotta cheese
  • Top with mushrooms, onions, arugula and flavorful cheese
  • Bake until cheese is melty and toppings are golden brown

    I had no idea you could put ricotta on a pizza. I remember throwing out leftover ricotta after making lasagna because I didn’t know what to do with it!

    Love this idea! When I’ve made tortilla pizzas in the past, I’ve had issues with the slices being too sloppy and all the toppings falling off…maybe I’m just overloading them?

      Do you bake the tortilla first? I always make sure that it is crispy, then top, then bake for a few more minutes so the cheese melts!

    Looks amazing! I make pizza once a week – I buy whole wheat dough from my supermarket. I definitely need to change it up with this ricotta version…yum!

    This looks delicious. I wish I could find tortillas or other flat breads made with spelt in the area that I live in. I don’t have time to make them on my own. I’m trying to get away from wheat because I tend to crave it so I eat a lot of it and it makes me fat.
