What’s For Dinner?
Fresh Tomato and Ricotta Pizza
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
While I was on vacation, a local pizza parlor was serving a pie topped with chopped fresh tomatoes. When I tried a slice, I was surprised by a hidden layer of ricotta under the mozzarella, and I fell in love with the pizza. As with all pizza, try to find the best-quality crust. For those who like garlic, lightly brush the crust with garlic oil before topping with ricotta.
