Lasagna pizza recipe

Serves about 6

This pie pairs together your favorite part of lasagna -- the bold marinara sauce and the gooey, ricotta and mozzarella cheese mixture -- with the best part of pizza, being the crispy, homemade crust! After just one bite, you'll have serious trouble going back to regular pizza or regular lasagna again. (Trust us, we're going through withdrawals.)

Ingredients:

For the crust:

  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)
  • Liberal dashes of salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oregano

For the toppings:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 7.5 ounces part-skim ricotta
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 medium onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Liberal dashes of salt and pepper
  • Fresh basil

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the yeast, water and sugar together. Let sit for 10 minutes or until foamy. Add in the flour, olive oil, salt and pepper and oregano. Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon.
  3. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until elastic, or about 8 minutes. Place the dough on the pizza sheet and roll (with a floured rolling pin) until about 1/4-inch thick.
  4. Spread the olive oil over the crust and add the sauce. In a shallow bowl, mix together the ricotta and mozzarella. Press spoonfuls of the ricotta mixture on top of the tomato sauce, covering the pizza but still leaving some patches. Cover with olive slivers, garlic and Parmesan.
  5. Garnish with additional salt and pepper and basil. Bake for 11 - 12 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
