Description

With a nutty crust that uses all-purpose and almond flours cut with butter, this crisp-crusted pizza is topped with a creamy, cheesy ricotta filling that's dotted with sweet bell peppers. There's not a lot of special equipment required — just a rolling pin to roll out the crust and dried beans to weight it while it par-bakes. All in all, it's a flexible recipe to which you can incorporate a wide variety of ingredients to suit your tastes.
