Garlic Rosemary Three Cheese Pizza | www.tasteandtellblog.com #recipe #pizza
My daughter turned 4 yesterday.  It’s kind of crazy.  I seriously feel like we were just bringing her home from the hospital, and now I am here, 4 year later.  And 2 more babies later.  Life sure has changed a lot these last 4 years!!

I always thought I wanted to have a boy first.  I had an older brother growing up, and I always loved having that feeling that there was always someone there to look out for you.  But since Abbi came into my life, I sure am glad that I started with a girl.  Especially when the other kids are so young.  She is my little helper, and I don’t know what I’d do without her.  Now I just need to find a way to freeze time to keep my kids young forever!!

One of Abbi’s favorite things in the whole world is pizza.  I honestly think that she’d eat it every day if I let her.  But she is a purist when it comes to pizza – cheese only.  Well, technically, it’s a little bit of sauce and a whole lot of cheese.  (Bur really – who wouldn’t be happy with that??)  But I’m the one that likes to take things a little further than just plain mozzarella cheese.

So I made a pizza that would make both of us happy.  3 cheeses, but a few more flavors that make it a little bit more sophisticated.

This pizza starts with a flavored pizza crust.  I used lots of garlic and rosemary, which I brushed over the entire crust before any toppings are added.  I first discovered that I really like ricotta on pizza when I made the Butternut Squash and Sage Pizza last fall.  So I couldn’t resist adding it to this pizza, plus a little mozzarella and Parmesan.  The flavored crust alone is reason to make this, and the cheese takes it over the top!

    Happy birthday to your oldest little one. 🙂 It does go so fast! My oldest will be 9 this year and I really, truly can’t understand how that has happened. And I’m all over this pizza. I came across a tub of ricotta in my fridge last night – unopened, unexpired. I’m not sure what it was intended for, but I had thought I should use it on garlic bread. Now I know what I’ll be using it for – it’s like it was meant to be. 😉

    I grew up with an older brother…but too bad, didn’t feel that protection you described! LOL…he was the one who bullied me! Oh well, so lucky you got a little helper with the little ones. 🙂 I have 2 kids myself and the older is a boy, so I make sure he’s giving the love and care to his little sister. 🙂
