  • ½ cup Whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp Sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • tsp Fresh cracked black pepper
  • All-purpose flour for dusting
  • 1 16 oz. Frozen pizza dough ball thawed
  • 1 8 oz. pkg Fresh mozzerella cheese thinly sliced

  • Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium heat; sprinkle underside of rimmed baking pan with cornmeal. In large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook 4 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and spinach; cook 2 minutes or until fragrant and spinach is wilted, stirring frequently.
  • In medium bowl, toss broccolini and remaining 1 tablespoon oil; place on hot grill rack, cover and cook 5 minutes or until grill marks appear, turning once. Transfer broccolini to cutting board; carefully cut into 1" pieces.
  • In small bowl, whisk ricotta cheese, heavy cream, sour cream, lemon juice and black pepper.
  • On lightly floured work surface, roll dough into 12" circle; carefully transfer to prepared pan. With fork, poke dough several times to vent; slide dough onto hot grill rack. Cover and cook 8 minutes or until bottom of crust is browned, rotating once halfway through cooking; transfer crust back to pan.
  • Leaving ½" border, spread crust with ricotta mixture; top with mozzarella, mussel meat, red peppers, onion mixture, broccolini and Parmesan cheese. Slide pizza onto hot grill rack; cover and cook 10 minutes or until edges of pizza are golden brown and cheese melts, rotating pizza crust if necessary to prevent crust from burning.
  • Transfer pizza to cutting board; cut into 8 slices and sprinkle with crushed red pepper, if desired.
