Author Notes: Fresh ricotta and good fresh mozzarella make all the difference in the world in this super garlicky, oniony pizza. Erin McDowell

Serves: 2

  • your favorite pizza dough
  • olive oil, as needed
  • 1 cup fresh ricotta cheese
  • salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano
  • 1 small onion, very thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced
  • 1 cup thinly sliced fresh mozzarella
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  1. Lightly oil the dough and transfer it to a baking sheet. Stipple and stretch the dough until it’s about 1/2 inch thick. Let rest about 15 minutes.
  2. Stipple and stretch the dough again, and oil the edges. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, salt, pepper, and herbs. Spread evenly onto the crust.
  3. Sprinkle the onion, garlic, and mozzarella on top of the ricotta. Bake in a 400 degree oven until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is golden, about 15-20 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting. Garnish with red pepper flakes.
