Notes

CHANGE IT UP: Vary the topping to suit your taste and use up whatever ingredients you have on hand. Try using tomato passata instead of pesto, replace tomatoes with sliced capsicum or mushrooms, or sprinkle over 1 tablespoon sliced black olives with the ricotta. TO REFRIGERATE: Pizza can be made 1 day ahead. Store covered in the fridge. Serve cold or reheat in the microwave to serve. It’s great for a tasty work lunch.
