Greek Salad Pizza

Greek Salad Pizza
Pizza dough
Pizza sauce (or marinara)
Ricotta cheese
Red onion, sliced thinly
Hot pepper, sliced thinly
Kalamata olives, chopped

In tonight's adventure in pizza toppings, we're going Greek(ish). I have some hot peppers from my parent's garden that remind me of those little ones you get in Greek salads, and I always need a little spice on my pizza. And you can't forget the kalamata olives! I really like to experiment with different cheeses, venturing away from the usual mozzarella. I just have a little feta left over from last night's turkey burgers, so I'm going to pair with dollops of creamy ricotta. All of these flavors are pretty strong, so I'm going to use these toppings sparingly.

Rich was initially suspicious of these combinations, but he loved it! The ricotta really mellows out the tangy and spicy toppings.
