Asparagus Ribbon and Whipped Ricotta Pizza

Love asparagus on pizza? Love milky, fresh ricotta? Then we’ve got good news for you. This pizza recipe from How Sweet It Is has both those things, plus provolone, parmesan, and prosciutto. Oh, and the ricotta is whipped until smooth, and blended with zippy, fresh garlic. Sound good? Find the recipe linked below.

So. Whipping ricotta is by far my favorite way to prepare the cheese. I don’t love it as much as whipped feta – there is no beating that tangy, delightful spread – but since I’m rather iffy on the texture of ricotta by itself, pureeing it until creamy is the only way to go.

And adding garlic.

And spreading it on pizza.

And covering it with additional cheeeeese.
