Shaved Asparagus Pizza

I found this easy recipe for pizza on the Smitten Kitchen website and thought it would be a good, quick dinner.  I followed the pizza dough recipe here and used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.  For the toppings, I substituted Asiago cheese for the Parmesan.  Overall it was great!  The crust didn’t rise very well (because of the whole wheat flour?) and therefore slightly resembled cardboard, but the toppings definitely made up for it.  Since the asparagus is so thin, it cooks in no time.  I’d definitely try this again and experiment with another crust recipe or leave the whole wheat flour out of the recipe I used.

  1. Your pizza looks really good. I’d like to try some.

  2. That’s really an interesting way of using asparagus! I usually use this recipe: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1036306 for whole wheat pizza dough, which is similar to the one you used. Could it have to do with mixing the yeast separately before mixing it with the salt? Yeast can be tricky…

  3. ooooo- this looks great! I’ve used asparagus on pizza quite a bit but never thought to shave it- can’t wait to try it!
