Tricolor Salad Pizzas

Pizza is such a favorite of ours we recently learned how to make our own pizza dough. It’s not too hard once you know the tricks. Cut down on the fat by using part-skim mozzarella and ricotta cheeses on these veggie-topped pies.


  • Cooking spray
  • 1-ounce parmesan cheese (1/3 cup grated)
  • 2 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 pound store-bought whole-wheat pizza dough, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 small head radicchio
  • 2 heads endive
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 4 cups baby arugula
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Finely grate the parmesan and thinly slice the mozzarella.
  2. Cut the pizza dough into 4 pieces. Sprinkle a work surface with the cornmeal and use a rolling pin and/or your hands to stretch each piece of dough into a rectangle about 5 by 11 inches; place 2 rectangles on each baking sheet. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
  3. Brush the dough with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then distribute 4 tablespoon-size dollops of the ricotta onto each rectangle. Scatter with the mozzarella slices, then sprinkle evenly with the grated parmesan and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  4. Bake until the cheese is melted and the dough is browned for about 12 minutes.
  5. While the pizzas are cooking, thinly slice the radicchio and endive and halve the tomatoes. Toss in a large bowl with the arugula, the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and the balsamic vinegar. Top each pizza with about 1 1/2 cups salad.

Serve immediately.
