This recipe is not at all what I thought it would be. I thought it would be pizza, and it really isn’t. When it came out of the oven my husband said “This is different than I thought it would be.” I think this is more quiche than pizza: a ricotta quiche with a sweet crust and a lattice top. I have to say that I wasn’t all that excited to make this. Maybe it was because I was just home from vacation and not in the cooking mood yet. I’m not sure. I got all the ingredients and still I wasn’t sure I was going to make it. But I did make it and it turned out just fine.
