Is it a quiche? Is it a tart? Is it a pizza flavoured cheesecake? It’s all of those, and yet a dish all on its own.

I make this on a regular basis as a quick and impressive lunch or picnic plate. The crispy crust against the smooth and creamy filling is delicious and sturdy enough to eat with your hands if needs be. The ricotta and eggs bake together to create a creamy and luscious filling, flavoured with tomato, basil and cheese, hence the pizza cheesecake title.

Try it for yourself and let me know what you think it should be called. Enjoy!

Haha - I love your introduction. Some food is just like that. It doesn't fit neatly in one category or another. And honestly, who says it needs to anyway? Meals can be healthy and taste amazing, even when we're not sure precisely what to call them.
