Pulling it out of the oven it looked good, it smelled good, it would be fine. When I took my first bite it tasted great, but very similar to a quiche. My son and I liked it, I knew my husband would be so-so, then I asked my home cooked-meal-challenged little brother what he thought. He turns to me, looking thoughtful, and says, "It's good. But I would add more meat, more cheese...and a little rosemary". Who would have thought he even knew what rosemary was? So there you have it. If you like quiche type foods, you will like this. If you're a man and like meat, then follow my brothers advice.
1/4 tsp salt
16 oz ricotta cheese (or cottage cheese, blended until smooth)
3 large eggs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
4 oz mozzarella cheese, grated
4 slices of bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
4 oz pepperoni, sausage, or prosciutto
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Take the smaller dough ball and roll it out into a 9 inch square. Using a pizza or pastry cutter, or a thin sharp knife, cut 12 even strips. Lay 6 of the strips across the pie, spaced 1 1/4 inches apart, then crisscross the strips by placing the other 6 strips diagonally across the first. Trim the edge of the strips even with the edge of the plate, and pinch to seal the edges.
