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. ;-)
