For the Base

  • 4 slices thick-cut rustic bread, preferably sourdough 
  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 


Sweet — Honey and Pear 

  • ½ pear, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon toasted walnuts
  • Pinch of cinnamon 

Savory — Everything Spice & Avocado 


  1. Toast your bread until golden brown. I like to broil mine for 2-3 minutes per side, but you could also toast your bread in a pan or a toaster oven– whatever works for you! 
  2. Add the ricotta and olive oil to the bowl of a food processor and pulse on high speed for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and process for another 30 seconds. Your ricotta should be smooth and creamy– if it isnt, pulse for another 30 seconds. 
  3. Spread the whipped ricotta over the toast and top with your choice of toppings. 
  4. Enjoy immediately. 
  5. Store any leftover ricotta spread in an airtight container for up to three days.
