Pizza!

Here is an awesome pizza recipe...

White Pizza with Chicken & Ricotta Cream Sauce


• 1 package Betty Crocker pizza crust mix (I used an already made pizza dough from Fresh n Easy)
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 teaspoon minced garlic
• 2 teaspoon dried Italian seasonings
• 1 chicken breast, cooked and chopped into pieces
• 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
• 1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach
• 1 cup mozzarella cheese
• 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
• 2 tablespoon butter
• 2 tablespoon flour
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup milk
• 3 tablespoons ricotta cheese
• 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
• salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Prepare pizza crust as directed. Add garlic powder into mix if desired. With floured fingers, evenly press and shape dough onto a nonstick cookie sheet or a pizza pan.
3. In a microwave safe bowl, combine olive oil, minced garlic and 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning and heat for 20 seconds. Drizzle olive oil mixture over the pizza crust.
4. Add the rest in the following order: mozzarella cheese, chopped chicken, chopped tomatoes, chopped spinach, parmesan cheese, the remaining 1 teaspoon dry seasonings.
5. Bake pizza 15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
6. Drizzle the sauce (recipe below) over pizza.

Ricotta Cream Sauce

2. Add milk all at once and continue cooking and stirring until thick.

3. Add ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese. Wisk until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.
