Broccoli-Ricotta Pizza Bianca Recipe

Broccoli-Ricotta Pizza Bianca


  • 1 cup cooked broccoli
  • fresh pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's herb dough this time)
  • 5-7 tablespoons ricotta cheese
  • buffalo mozzerella slices
  • shredded mozzerella cheese
  • locatelli cheese, shredded
  • 1 frozen basil cube (or use fresh)
  • 1 frozen garlic cube (or mash 1 fresh clove)
  • teaspoon sea salt
  • EVOO

How to make Broccoli-Ricotta Pizza Bianca

I love mishapen pizzas, it reminds me of a more authentic/rustic pizza.  I made this one oblong, and sliced into strips.

Oven at 500F

On an oiled pizza stone, flatten and shape the dough to your liking.

For the base, thaw the frozen basil and garlic cubes in a the microwave for like 15 secs. Trader Joe's carries these in the frozen aisle and they are a Godsend! (If using fresh, chop basil fine, and mash garlic to a paste.)

In a tiny bowl, add the garlic, basil, sea salt and enough EVOO to make a spread (approx 2-3 tablespoons).  Mix well with a fork and spread all over the dough. MMMMM!

Follow with toppings in this order:
  1. locatelli
  2. shredded mozz
  3. broccoli
  4. ricotta
  5. buffalo mozz
Cook for 8-10 minutes. Your mouth will thank you. I didn't even make it to the table before scarfing this down.
