[Recipe] Pizza for One – Pesto Ricotta Pizza

Since there was left over doughs and pesto from the Pesto Cheese Balls, we thought “why don’t we make a pizza?” The dough that we used was pizza dough anyway, so it was perfect!

The thought of making this pizza was definitely impromptus, but it turned out to be our favorite besides the Earl grey chocolate braid.

Pizza is so versatile that you can pretty much top it with whatever you like, either sweets or savory.

The combo of pesto and cheese, and an egg is just perfect. There’s nothing wrong you can go with any of those ingredients right? Since we like runny yolks, we only baked for around 15-20 minutes. However, if you prefer cooked yolk, you can leave it in the oven for extra 5 minutes.
