Dolloped atop layers of pleasantly salty prosciutto (a type of Italian cured ham), tangy piquante peppers, and red onion, a rich topping of ricotta mixed with sweet honey adds just the right amount of cooling contrast to this loaded pizza. A crunchy, creamy buttermilk-dressed salad rounds out this hearty meal.

Prepare the pizza ingredients:
1 Prepare the pizza ingredients:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 475°F. Halve the bread. Roughly chop the peppers. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, add the tomato sauce and chopped garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to thoroughly combine.

Assemble & bake the pizza:
2 Assemble & bake the pizza:

Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the bread on the foil, cut side up. Evenly top with the seasoned tomato sauce, mozzarella (tearing into small pieces before adding), prosciutto (removing the plastic lining between the slices), chopped peppers, and as much of the sliced onion as you’d like. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake, rotating the sheet pan halfway through, 14 to 16 minutes, or until the bread is lightly browned and the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven. Let stand at least 2 minutes, then carefully transfer to a cutting board.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
3 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the pizza bakes, wash and dry the lettuce and radishes. Roughly chop the lettuce. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, whisk together the ricotta and honey (kneading the packet before opening); season with salt and pepper. To make the dressing, in a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, and half the spice blend (you will have extra). Season with salt and pepper. 

Dress the salad & serve your dish:
4 Dress the salad & serve your dish:

Just before serving, to the bowl of dressing, add the chopped lettuce and sliced radishes. Toss to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cut the baked pizza into equal-sized pieces. Top with the honey ricotta. Serve the finished pizza with the salad on the side. Enjoy!
