Ricotta & garlic scapes on pizza?

I'm going to make a ricotta & garlic scape pizza, but trying to decide between putting whole scapes on or making a pesto and drizzling it over the ricotta.. What would you do?

I have been using ricotta directly on grilled pizzas and it's great.

I agree that the pesto is a great idea and use ricotta all the time to make a white pizza and with the pesto it will be wonderful.

I would make garlic scape pesto and use that on the pizza. With ricotta - sounds delicious!

I'll politely disagree on the ricotta, altough the garlic scape pesto sounds like a fine idea. But ricotta is just not a great pizza cheese because you should be firing the pizza in a super hot oven and ricotta can be returning into liquid before you know it. Fresh mozzarella works as does a low moisture mozza. I prefer the former. You could of course top with ricotta when it comes out of the oven.
