A few weeks ago, I talked about Cauliflower Crust Pizza and showed you a basic tomato and mozzarella version. Now I want to tell you about this amazing version with creamy ricotta cheese and garlicky sauteed chard.
It all starts with the chard - and luckily Melissa (Smells Like Brownies) was growing some in her yard!
Saute the chard stems in olive oil - I love how bright and colorful they are!
Then add in garlic and the leaves, which cook faster than the stems, and finish with red wine vinegar.
Top a fully cooked cauliflower crust with fresh, whole milk ricotta and the chard mixture. Enjoy!

Dollop the ricotta on the pizza and top with the chard mixture. Drizzle with olive oil.
