Nothing says spring to me quite like asparagus. This recipe is a simple, springy pizza that can be made for the family, for one (like mine featured below) or turned into little appetizers for a party – I’m thinking smaller pieces of asparagus on a crescent roll base.
Aptly called “Spring Pizza,” this Eatingwell recipe is a snap. I made mine for one on a whole wheat pita by doing the following:
1 TBS olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup snipped fresh chives
Spread the above ingredients on 1 whole wheat pita and cover pita with asparagus spears.
Spray asparagus with olive oil (if you don’t have a spray bottle, just add it to the above mixture to coat), salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded cheese (I used parmesan because that’s what I had).
Bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes.
It looks delish! Do you need to cook the Asparagus a bit before hand? Does it get tender enough?
Nope! No need to cook the asparagus in advance, it cooks in the oven!
