Pizza Biancaneve (White Pizza)

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins
Servings 6 -8 slices


  • 1 pound raw pizza crust
  • 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta
  • 2 cups whole milk mozzarella
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt


  • Preheat a pizza pan or stone on the bottom rack of the oven to 500° F. Do not use the convection feature because you want the heat to come from the bottom to properly cook the bottom crust.
  • Roll out the dough to the size of the pizza pan on a sheet of parchment paper.
  • Spread the olive oil and pressed garlic evenly onto the crust up to an inch of the edges.
  • Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  • Top the base with the shredded mozzarella and then drop some evenly-spaced unseasoned ricotta dollops, a half-teaspoon at a time, over the top.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the the bottom crust is lightly golden and the top of the pizza is beginning to caramelize.
  • Let it set for about 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
