Western White
Ricotta is a fresh Italian-style cheese that gives this pizza a slightly sweet and creamy texture. Mix 1 cup Ricotta with oregano, basil, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread the seasoned Ricotta over Ranch dressing. Add 1/2 cup diced onion and sprinkle Mozzarella and Monterey Jack over all.

Western Green and White
For a more adventurous version of the classic White Pizza, sprinkle 1 cup chopped fresh spinach and 1 cup cooked chicken (shredded or cubed) over Ranch dressing. Sprinkle Mozzarella, Monterey Jack and herbs over all.
