Start with having your dough ready, either home made, store bought (make sure it’s 3 or 4 ingredients not 20) or what I do is my pizza guy makes it all organic and sells me dough very cheap and I don’t have to kill my small kitchen making dough for one flat bread. Take the ball and put it into a bowl with some olive oil and let rise for an hour making sure the dough is moist with olive oil at all times.
Now this topping is good for anything, add it to a salad, eat it on its own so just combine all the ingredients for the bean salad (let’s call it that and enjoy ourselves)and set aside. Even better if it sits overnight.
Take the Ricotta and add the garlic and olive oil mix well.
Now we are ready, pre heat your oven to 450 degrees. Spread the dough out as flat as you can as shown in my photo. Now spread the ricotta on top in a very thin layer. Now add a layer of the white bean salad and into the oven until everything is bubbling and the crust is almost chard and golden brown. Take out and shave some grated Parmesan cheese on top and let come to room temp as this is best. This one perfect to make several and let sit around for the kids or guest so they have something to munch on anytime.
