Cooking instruction summary:

For the crust: To make the crust, add all of the ingredients to a food processor and process until well-combined. Alternatively if you do not have a food processor, beat together the egg, oil, milk, vanilla extract, and the sugar in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer until smooth. In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and the salt. Add in with the wet ingredients and mix until combined. If dough seems too sticky, add 1/4-1/2 cup more. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 1 minute. Roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin into an even layer until it is approximately 1/4-inch thick. Arrange the dough in a pie dish. Fold the edges of the crust into whatever design you desire and set aside. For the pie: Preheat oven 350 degrees F. In a mixing bowl, beat together the ricotta cheese, sugar, egg yolks and egg, and the vanilla until smooth. Then mix in the baking powder, flour, and cinnamon. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour the mixture into the pie dish over the crust. Bake the pie for approximately 40-45 minutes. The pie will still be jiggly in the center and will set as it cools. If youd like to add the ganache on top, add the chocolate chips and milk to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring well in between until melted and smooth. Spread on top of the pie after it has cooled for 30 minutes or so. Garnish with extra chocolate chips if desired. Let pie cool completely before cutting, at least 2 hours. Cover with foil and chill leftovers.
