This Spinach Ricotta Pizza with Roasted Garlic makes a great vegetarian meal! I use a cauliflower pizza crust to make it gluten free and much lower in carbs than traditional pizza!

Not too long ago I shared with you guys my recipe for Cauliflower Pizza Crust! Now, I’m going to tell you one of my favorite ways to transform that crust into a delicious white pizza! I’ve definitely used red sauce on cauliflower crusts before, but it does tend to make it soggy and harder to pick up. This recipe for Spinach Ricotta Pizza with Roasted Garlic does not have a sauce, so if you use my Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe you should get a great final result! You can also use a regular pizza crust you’ve made or buy one pre-made at the store.
All the flavors in this Spinach Ricotta Pizza work really well together, but pizza is such an individual thing. Why do you think pizza companies let you pick and choose what you want on yours? It’s like no two people want the exact same pizza…half pepperoni/half cheese anyone? I feel like pizza recipes are just a base for you to build upon and make your own, including this one. If you want more mozzarella, add it. Less? Don’t put as much. I went light on the spinach and put big globs of ricotta cheese on mine because the first time I had ricotta cheese on a pizza, it was just like that. I want lots of ricotta in each bite!! You can also mix the two cheeses and spread them onto the crust!
I’m going to tell you in the recipe below the exact measurements I used for the pizza you’re about to see. I would recommend just using it as a guideline to make a pizza YOU will love! Trust me, my feelings won’t be hurt of you don’t make yours exactly the same! I’m already thinking of multiply ways I want to switch it up myself!
I am also including directions for how to roast garlic in the notes below the recipe. Once it’s roasted you’re going to mince it up and mix it with some olive oil, then brush it onto the pizza crust before the toppings and/or dab it on top of the toppings. If you don’t have time to roast the garlic, you can use regular garlic, but the flavor will be slightly different.
