Ingredients

  • 1 store-bought thin crust pizza crust
  • 1/4 cup olive oil divided
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • Pinch of basil
  • Pinch of oregano
  • 1/2 lb. ricotta cheese
  • 10 grape or cherry tomatoes sliced
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 zucchini sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes or more

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Place pizza crust on a pizza stone or baking sheet, then brush it with 3 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle the garlic, oregano and basil over top.
  • Place sliced tomatoes in a bowl, then drizzle them with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place tomatoes and ricotta on the pizza crust, then bake pizza for 8-10 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft. While pizza is baking, use a peeler to slice zucchini into ribbons and set aside.
  • Remove pizza from the oven, then sprinkle it with parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Last, add the zucchini.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

-This pizza is a white pizza, meaning there isn't any tomato sauce. If you want, you can spread 1/2 cup (or more) marinara sauce on top before adding the toppings
