The dough for the pizza crust is refrigerated before being rolled out for two reasons: to relax the gluten in the flour and to make the dough easier to work with. You'll also love the addition of part-skim ricotta cheese to the pizza dough, as well as the convenience of using a food processor to make it. After forming and baking the dough, all you have to do is arrange some plum slices in gorgeous-looking concentric circles 'til you get to the center, then top the plums with sugar and almonds. It strikes the perfect balance of nutty-sweetness ideal for any dessert.


All-purpose flour

1 cup(s)


½ cup(s)

Baking powder

1 Tbsp

Table salt


Part-skim ricotta cheese


Unsalted butter

2 Tbsp, cut into pieces

Egg white(s)

1 large

Low-fat milk

2 tsp

Vanilla extract

1¼ tsp

Egg white(s)

1 large, lightly beaten


8 item(s), medium, (about 2 pounds), halved, pitted, and thickly sliced


2 Tbsp


2 Tbsp, unblanched variety


  1. To make the dough, put the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a food processor; pulse to blend. Add the ricotta, butter, egg white, milk, and vanilla; pulse just until the dough begins to form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  3. Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of wax paper to form a 10-inch round. Remove the top sheet of wax paper and flip the dough onto the baking sheet; remove the wax paper. Fold the edge of the dough over to form a 1⁄2-inch rim. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool about 5 minutes on the baking sheet on a rack.
  4. Brush the crust with the egg white. Beginning at the edge, arrange the plum slices in concentric circles, overlapping the slices slightly; sprinkle evenly with the sugar. Bake for 40 minutes. Sprinkle the almonds over the fruit and bake until the crust is golden brown and the plums soften but still hold their shape, about 10 minutes longer. Cut into 8 wedges and serve at once. Yields 1 wedge per serving.
