White Pizza with Ramps

We have been curious about ramps.  They are available at our farmer's market in the spring so we decided to give them a try.  We think they would be a good alternative green in our peasant pasta dish but here we made a "white" pizza instead.  We used pizza dough available at Trader Joe's and used some cooked diced chicken, minced garlic, mushrooms and olive oil and cheese.  Bake the pizza for 12-15 min at 400 degrees.  While the pizza is baking, chop the ramps and steam them until they are just wilted to maintain their crunchy texture.  Top the pizza with the ramps.  They have a very nice subtle onion flavor this way.  A nice alternative to "red" pizzas.  The salad was made by mixing vinegar and sour cream 1/2 and 1/2 and adding sliced red onion and cucumbers...salt and pepper to taste.
