Pizza with Ham, Asparagus, and Ricotta

In this video, you’ll see how to make a white pizza sauce with olive oil, fresh ricotta cheese, and a splash of cream. Watch Chef John spread the sauce sparingly over his pizza dough—a little restraint is in order here. Next, it's time for toppings: quickly blanched asparagus, some smoked ham, and a sprinkling of sharp white Cheddar and Parmesan. Finally, you’ll see Chef John’s trick for getting a perfectly crisp crust—no pizza stone necessary! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Pizza with Ham, Asparagus, and Ricotta.

He may not be Italian (of course not), but his method of baking pizza without a pizza stone and getting an excellent result is perfect. And, he has a sense of humour, which is so welcome!

Chef John is definitely NOT Italian - notice how he pronounces "ricotta!"
