Easy, Delicious White Pizza

I made these to go with a spaghetti supper one night for everyone on our beach vacation. They were really delicious, so I made them again for movie night at church. Those were even better because a friend of mine gave me some of his homemade mozzarella to use. If you would like to have a supper quick and delicious meal.....here you go.

White Pizza
1 refrigerated thin pizza crust (I used Pillsbury and it was wonderful)
garlic oil
3 cups grated mozzarella
8 oz. whole milk ricotta cheese
grated parmesan cheese
chopped fresh oregano
chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper

 Make garlic oil by placing 2 chopped cloves of garlic in 1/2 cup olive oil. Heat for 1 minute in the microwave. Let the garlic infuse the oil for at least 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350. Place the crust on a parchment lined cookie sheet (oiled with the garlic oil). Spread garlic oil over the crust as well, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and prebake for 5 minutes. Layer the mozzarella cheese and fresh oregano (you could use dried). Dollop the ricotta cheese on top. Sprinkle on the parmesan cheese, then salt and pepper again. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is browned. Add chopped fresh basil and drizzle with the garlic oil. Cut into squares and serve. The plain cheese ones are our favorite but you can add any additional items you desire. I made one with fresh chopped tomatoes and one with pepperoni, so good!

Just saw this post, Kerrie. Looks awesome! We sometimes try fresh spinach and red bell pepper, on ours.
