If this recipe could talk, it would say “I’m so fancy!” Seriously: you’ve got lemony ricotta cheese that’s smooth like a cloud, plus bites of tomato and zucchini bursting with juices, which are all piled onto two warm and toasty flatbreads. Oh, and we have to talk about the bling on top: a basil leaf, chili flake, and honey garnish that makes each bite light up with aromatic, spicy, and sweet contrasts. You’ve just hit dinnertime gold.

Meanwhile, pick basil leaves from stems; discard stems and roughly tear leaves. Once flatbreads are done, remove from oven and top with torn basil, remaining lemon zest, and chili flakes to taste. Drizzle with honey, then slice into pieces and divide between plates. Serve with remaining lemon wedges on the side.
