Bianca Pizza with Artisan Bread Baker's Dough

Makes 1 ea. 10-12 in. pizza This elegant “white” pizza has endless possibilities and variations. Pizza Bianca becomes more exotic with the addition of infused oils, pancetta, or a vibrant garnish of fresh arugula.

Ingredients

  • 1 ea. 10-oz. Artisan Bread Baker's Dough ball
  • 2 oz. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 oz. fresh ricotta cheese (we suggest Grande brand)
  • 1 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • Italian Seasoning, to taste
  • Pecorino romano cheese, to taste

Preparation

  1. Oven Temperature: 570-600 degrees
  2. Flour both sides of the dough ball and gently open the ball by hand to the desired thickness. Generally a 10-oz. dough ball will make a 10-12-in. pizza.
  3. Brush the olive oil over the surface of the shell, within 1⁄4-in. of the edge.
  4. Place small dollops of ricotta evenly over the olive oil, followed by the gorgonzola. Take care to ensure that each slice of pizza will have a bit of both kinds of cheese. Sprinkle the pizza with Italian Seasoning and Pecorino romano.
  5. Transfer the pizza onto a large peel and land it in the raw landing zone of the oven. Once the pizza begins to color nicely on the side closest to the flame, rotate it 180° and move it one pizza length closer to the flame, into the finishing zone.
  6. Once the side closest to the flame colors, and the top and bottom color of the pizza is balanced, remove the pizza from the oven using a large peel. Transfer the pizza to a cooling screen for about 1 minute to prevent sweating, then move it to a pizza board and slice into pieces. Total bake time will be about 4 minutes.
