1. In a small bowl, mix together one- half of oil with the garlic. Brush onto crusts; bake according to package directions. Set aside to cool slightly.

2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, blend ricotta, lemon zest and juice, basil and dill. Season with fine salt and pepper.

3. Evenly spread ricotta mixture over both crusts, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with tomatoes, Parmesan and pepper flakes and drizzle with remaining one-half of oil; scatter additional basil on top (if using). Sprinkle with flaky salt.
