Forget the classic pizza and behold a whole new take on pizza, done by adding smoked turkey and ricotta cheese.
Begin by preheating your oven to 475 F with a pizza stone inside, if you have one. During this time, prepare your ingredients.
Roll out your pizza dough to about a 12-inch pie. Once the oven is preheated, place the dough on your pizza stone, and cook for about 5 minutes or so, until it par cooks. If it begins to bubble up, poke the air pocket with a fork. After about 5 minutes, open your oven door and slide out the stone a bit on your rack. Brush on the olive oil, then spread on the garlic. Place it back in the oven and cook for about 3 more minutes. Remove it from the oven, then spoon on the ricotta, spreading it all over the dough.
Top the ricotta cheese with the smoked turkey, then the mozzarella cheese. Slide it back into the oven and cook for 5 minutes or just until the mozzarella cheese is nice and bubbly.
Pull the stone out of the oven remove the pizza from the stone and onto your cutting board. Slice and serve.
Before biting into it you get this subtle smoke smell from the turkey that is just exciting in itself. Then when you bite into it, you get this garlic creaminess, along with the pull from the mozzarella cheese and the chunks of smoked turkey. It’s great. It’s a whole new take on pizza, and to me, I love that. If you have any leftover smoked turkey, go ahead and give this pizza a shot. Simple and delicious.
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
