Like my grandmother taught me, I love using fresh, simple ingredients. In this low-cost recipe, creamy ricotta brings out the sweetness of the tomatoes, all on an onion and herb crust. —Debbie Roppolo, San Marcos, Texas

  1. Preheat oven to 250°. In a bowl, toss tomatoes with oil, sugar and salt. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Roast 2 hours or until tomatoes are soft and slightly shriveled.
  2. For crust, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir 3-4 minutes or until tender. Stir in herbs. Cool slightly.
  3. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine sugar, oil, salt, yeast mixture and 1 cup flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in onion mixture and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  4. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Punch down dough; roll to fit bottom and 1/2-in. up sides of pan. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  6. In a small bowl, mix ricotta cheese, garlic, salt and Italian seasoning. Spread over crust; top with roasted tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Bake 12-15 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Yield: 8 servings.

"My family is a fan of white pizza. This is a great one. We have also done this with roasted garlic as well as the tomato or with just the garlic by itself. YUM!"

"At least as good as any white pizza from the pizzeria. The roasted tomatoes were perfect here, adding a subtle bit of sweetness. I used a refrigerated pizza dough."
