I don’t have much to say about this asparagus pizza, except that it is delicious. I saw this recipe on Smitten Kitchen (obviously) and was immediately intrigued by the fact that it was tomato-free and involved shaved asparagus - which sounded both delicious and impressive. I love recipes like this that are incredibly simple but seem sophisticated…
This pizza is so yummy I've made it numerous times… despite the fact that it is no longer asparagus season, I indulged a friend’s request to try it, and it did not disappoint.
- 1 recipe pizza dough (or store bought for you semi-homemade folks!)
- 1/2 pound asparagus
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
- 1/2 pound mozzarella, shredded or cut into small cubes
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
- Black pepper
- 1 scallion, thinly sliced
Preheat your oven to the hottest temperature it goes, or about 500 in most cases. If you use a pizza stone, have it in there.
