This recipe sort of came about by accident. We have a picky eater that needs to gain some weight and some times the things I try with her work and some times they don't. Most recently I tried stirring ricotta cheese into her yogurt. She wasn't a fan. So I had a tub of ricotta leftover. I had also recently purchased a jar of sun dried tomato pesto with no real plan for it either. I wondered if I could make something with them together. I Googled the two items together and the top two recipe ideas that came up were either a pasta dish or pizza. We are currently staying with my grandparents as we travel and she wanted to make pizza one night, so I decided to try it with that. To make Ricotta-Pesto Pizza you need:
Crust - ours was ready made dough
Pizza Sauce - optional
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup pesto
Toppings - I used grape tomatoes cut in half
Freshly grated parmesean
I wasn't sure if it really needed pizza sauce but I thought it couldn't hurt so I added a very thin layer. I ended up being glad that I did add it as it tasted pretty good. Then I mixed the ricotta and pesto together and spread that on in a slightly thicker layer.
