This white pizza made with a base of seasoned ricotta instead of tomato sauce, is a perfect way to highlight spring’s best produce. We top this pretty pizza with asparagus and snap peas, but you can try other green vegetables, such as green beans, zucchini or small broccoli florets. Pizzas don't have to be round—here we stretch it into a long oval shape. You can of course shape the dough into a round, if you'd prefer, or divide the dough into 4 pieces and make smaller 4 individual pizzas.
