Food Thursday: Asparagus Pizza

Whether it’s appetizers for a party or snacks for a football Sunday, I like to keep a stack of recipes for fun food that doesn’t require lots of work or silverware. Anything that falls in the flatbread or pizza category tends to make that stack. This one should be added to yours (or just come over here to watch football sometime and I’ll make it for you.)

Asparagus Pizza

1 tube of refrigerated pizza dough (I prefer the thin crust for this recipe)
1 bag of shredded mozzerella
1 package of spreadable garlic & herb cheese (Boursin or Alouette)
1 bunch of asparagus

1. Preheat oven to 450
2. Stretch pizza dough out to fit a baking sheet. Spread the mozzerella on top.
3. Snap the woody ends off the asparagus and using a vegetable peeler, shave it into thin strips – you’ll get 3-4 strips from each piece. Pile it all over the pizza. It will seem like a lot but when it cooks it kind of shrinks down so use all of it.
4. Dot the pizza liberally with your spreadable cheese. Top with some black pepper.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden.
