Ricotta Pizza with Fresh and Roasted Tomatoes

By: Grace Verage

Had this last night… it was DELICIOUS.

I make my own Pizza dough. It’s really simple. I have my recipe from Pioneer Woman. You can find it here:

TO MAKE THE CRUST: (Makes 2 pizza doughs)

Sprinkle yeast over 1 1/2 cups warm (not lukewarm) water.
In a mixer, combine flour and salt. With the mixer running on low speed (with paddle attachment), drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour. Next, pour in yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined.

Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, and form the dough into a ball. Toss to coat dough in olive oil, then *Option 1*) cover the bowl with a damp dish-towel and put it in a warm place to rise (I use my oven) for 2 hours.

or *Option 2*) Pioneer woman’s suggestion: cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you need it. ***It’s best to make the dough at least 24 hours in advance, and 3 or 4 days is even better.

    I made this two days ago and it was yummy! Just threw whatever I had in the fridge for veggies, some pepperoni (from Aldi), and cheese on the crust. Delicious!
