Grilled Lemon Ricotta & Garden Greens Pizza
Yield: serves 6-8
  • 1 recipe pizza dough*
  • 2 cups whole milk ricotta
  • 2 lemons, zest and juice
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • lots of fresh lettuce
  • salt and pepper
  1. Heat your grill to its hottest setting.
  2. Divide pizza dough into 4-6 equal pieces depending on if you want individual pies or more of a crowd-pleasing appetizer size. Roll them out and cover with a towel to rest for 15-20 minutes while you prepare the toppings.
  3. Add the zest of both lemons to the ricotta as well as the juice from one of the lemons and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Whisk the juice of the other lemon with the olive oil, season with salt and pepper and use this to dress your garden greens (you might not need all of it). Add a touch more olive oil into the used dressing bowl - this will be for brushing the pizza dough.
  5. Brush one side of dough with olive oil and place that side onto the grill. Brush the top side quickly and close the grill. Let cook 2 minutes and flip once the dough has some nice grill marks. Cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side. Let cool slightly.
  6. Top pizzas with ricotta and dressed greens. Enjoy promptly!
*You can also find pretty decent pizza dough in your grocery freezer section or to go the simplest route get some store-bought naan (whole foods sells a tasty one) and all you have to do is heat it up on the grill - i mean no judgements here, this recipe is really about easy fresh grilling.
