I make Pizza Dolce every year for Easter just like my grandmother and mother did. It's one of those Italian recipes that will vary from family to family. Some people make it with dried fruit. Some use a pie shell. I love it just like this. Hope you do too! Enjoy.
ps: I've tried making this with low fat ricotta and egg whites. Didn't work. Sometimes you just have to go with it - calories and all. ;-)

Ingredients

3 lb
whole milk ricotta cheese
1 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
vanilla
12
eggs
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 c
semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine all ingredients in large bowl and mix well.
2
Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan or two 10 inch rounds.
3
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes (until top is golden.) Start checking after an hour.
4
Let cool completely. (You can make this ahead and keep in frig.)
5
Cut into squares and arrange on plate (if baked in pan) or if you baked in the two rounds, serve like you would a pie. Enjoy!

Looks and sounds delicious! I am wanting to try something different for Easter this year and you've inspired me. I'm thinking a traditional Italian supper. Any thoughts??

It's lighter than cheesecake and it has a whole dozen eggs? How is that lighter? Can you reduce the eggs to at least a half a dozen? That's a lot of cholesterol!
