Makes 8 servings

  • 1 tbsp, plus 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 package refrigerated ready-to-bake pizza crust dough (10 ounces)
  • 5-1/4 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 tsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/8 tsp oregano leaves
  • 3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. In small saucepan heat oil; add garlic and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden, about 1 minute; set aside.
  2. Spray 12-inch round pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray; fit pizza crust dough into pan. Using a pastry brush, brush garlic-oil mixture evenly over dough, leaving 1/2 inch of outer edge of dough uncovered.
  3. Sprinkle oiled surface of dough with mozzarella cheese. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. In small bowl combine Parmesan cheese, parsley and oregano. Remove pizza from oven and drop ricotta cheese by 8 rounded tablespoonfuls in a circular pattern onto pizza. Sprinkle pizza with Parmesan cheese mixture. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted, 10 to 15 minutes. Cut into 8 equal slices.
