Nothing is better than homemade pizza!
Prep Time20 minutes

Servings - 6 servings


  • 1 Whole Wheat Pizza Dough or store bought pizza crust
  • 1/2 cup garlic basil pesto
  • 2 Roma tomatoes sliced
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic


  • Heat oven to 400 F.
  • Prepare the pizza dough according to instructions.
  • After the pizza is rolled out onto the pizza stone, bake it at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and spread the pesto over the dough to within 3/4 inch of the dough edge. This will leave a good outer crust.
  • Evenly distribute the sliced Roma tomatoes on the pesto. Spoon the ricotta between the tomatoes. Don't spread it. Just let it stay gently mounded.
  • Return the pizza to the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Serve warm.
