Bagel Pizzas Recipe

This is a different culinary delight for lovers of both pizza and bagels. In fact, it is pizza/bagel heaven.

Created by Brenda Hulin for About.com, this recipe will make six pizzas.

These pizzas utilize the large-size bagels, with one-half of one forming the crust for each.

For a change of pace, add a slice of smoked salmon or salami over the ricotta.
