I usually buy whole wheat dough to make pizza, but lately I've been really digging these frozen corn meal crusts made by Vicolo (despite the name, they are not gluten-free). You may need to adjust the amount of ricotta/goat cheese mixture, depending on the type and size of crust you use. For example, I used about two-thirds of the mixture for one Vicolo pizza crust. I also used about 1/4 of a sliced red onion and 2 medium beets.
