Pizza Bianca (Makes 4 servings)
This is one of the fastest pizza recipes ever, thanks to those pre-baked pizza crusts available at supermarkets.

2 cloves garlic, halved
1 tbsp. (15 mL) dried, red chili pepper, crushed fine (or to taste)
1/4 cup (60 mL) extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup (60 mL) freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 lb. (225 g) Italian prosciutto, cut into thin strips
1 small red or Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup (125 mL) fresh basil, roughly chopped
1/2 lb. (225 g) mild goat cheese, crumbled
Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Rub pizza crust with garlic. Add chili pepper to oil and brush it over dough surface. Sprinkle parmesan evenly over top. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until crust is slightly browned.

Remove crust from oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Distribute prosciutto over crust, followed by onion and basil. Then crumble goat cheese all over. Drizzle with oil; slice into sections before serving immediately.
