1/2 recipe Pizza Dough
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 cups thinly sliced leek (about 3 large)
1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 450°.
Roll dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place the dough on a (12-inch) pizza pan or baking sheet coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with cornmeal. Crimp the edges of the dough with fingers to form a rim.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add leek; sauté for 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
Combine cheeses, salt, pepper, and garlic in a bowl. Spread the cheese mixture over pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with the leek mixture, and sprinkle with walnuts. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cut into 8 wedges.
