Red Pepper Pizza uses a blended roasted red pepper sauce with ricotta cheese to create and warm, savory, and quick pizza recipe. Easy to make, this is perfect for when you want pizza quick. Roasted red pepper sauce creates the perfect sauce for pizza!
1 refrigerated thin crust pizza dough
1 7oz jar roasted red peppers, drained
1 garlic clove
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 and 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
5 basil leaves, chopped
extra virgin olive oil, garlic powder, and salt for crust
1. Preheat oven to 425. Lightly spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray, unroll the refrigerated thin crust pizza dough onto the baking sheet and spread the dough until it covers the sheet. If the dough splits and gets any holes just knead the dough a bit to close the hole. Bake for 8-10 minutes then remove from oven,
2. In a food processor or blender, blend the roasted red peppers, garlic clove, salt and 1/2 tablespoon of oil.
3. After the pizza dough has pre-baked, cover it with the Mozzarella cheese, leaving a small border for the crust. If you feel it needs more cheese depending on how large your pizza dough is, by all means add more cheese! After the crust is covered with the Mozzarella, spoon over top in small dollops the ricotta cheese, then sprinkle over top the Parmesan cheese, then drizzle the roasted red pepper sauce, and lastly sprinkle the chopped basil over the whole pizza. With a basting brush (or you can use a paper towel as a brush) coat the crust with some extra virgin olive oil and very lightly sprinkle with garlic powder and a little salt. Bake at 425 for 10-12 minutes until the crust is crispy and the cheese is browned and bubbly.
