This is a nice and tasty "make your own" pizza - great for quick and fun mid week meal! I might try another cheese next time, as the ricotta didn't melt as much as mozarella would. I also added dried oregano, red onion and mushrooms! 2 pizza bases does not feed 4 people though - they are not very big - so 1 pizza base per person I say!! :-)

Tried this last week from the magazine.I too added red onion for flavour and colour didn't like the Ricotta,I will try it with Mozzerella as always,Or maybe Goats Cheese.

Really good. I also added some red onions and a little orange pepper. I added some mozzerella as I wasn't convinced the ricotta would work but it did and was really nice. Also added some fresh herbs - marjoram and oregano on the top.

This pizza was really yummy - even my hubbie who doesn't normally like pizza enjoyed it! Didn't feel as heavy as normal pizza. We added some red onions to it for added flavour. Will def make again.
