Saputo

Whipped Ricotta, Sausage and Peppers Pizza

Making a premium-quality pizza has never been so savory and creamy. Saputo’s delicate blend of whipped ricotta and Parmesan adds a new dimension of flavor that pairs perfectly with the spicy bite of sausage
and peppers. 

Ingredients:

Whipped Ricotta:

  • 1 c. ricotta
  • 3/4 c. Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Pizza:

  • 15 oz. pizza dough
  • Olive oil, brushed on crust
  • 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
  • 1 c. mozzarella
  • 4 oz. sausage crumbles
  • 1/4 c. roasted peppers
  • 1/4 c. roasted onions
  • Ricotta dollops
  • Pesto sauce

Directions:

To make the whipped ricotta, add ricotta to the bowl of the food processor with the blade attachment. Run on high for 1 minute or until smooth. Add Parmesan and process until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning. Put into pastry bag for pizza.

For the pizza, roll pizza dough to 16” in diameter. Top with 1/4 c. Parmesan and 1 c. mozzarella. Top cheese blend with sausage, roasted peppers and onions. Pipe ricotta dollops on top of pizza. Bake at 400°F for 15 to 20 minutes, rotating halfway through, or until crust is crispy. Drizzle with pesto after the pizza comes out of the oven.
