Recipe by Groundhog Gal
Delicious! Made this the other night to use up leftover spinach and ricotta that was in the fridge...we devoured it! We used a store bought pizza crust but I can only imagine homemade would rival any restaurant offering. Never thought of putting ricotta on a pizza, but try it...very rich and satisfying. We did grate more Parmesan Cheese over the slices before eating...yum! The New York Style Pizza Sauce is also posted on this website..easy and delicious!
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 3⁄4 cup new york style pizza sauce

- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1⁄3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
- 2 plum tomatoes, cored and thinly sliced
