Asparagus Pizza – Yummy

Featured image

Who loves pizza? I do. And I’m sure, I’m not the only one. My preferred combination is with red bell peppers, sweet corn an onions. Sounds kind of weird – I know. But I’m up for any other combination too as long as it’s vegetarian.

Last year a friend tipped me off on a delicious variation – asparagus pizza. It’s different and it’s soooo good. On top of it, it’s easy to make.

Here’s the recipe:

The dough
300 gr flour
1 pck of dry yeast
150 ml water (lukewarm)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt

The topping
1 pck sauce hollandaise (ready made or follow this recipe)
500-700 gr. asparagus
some ham (optional)
200 gr. grated cheese

  • Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit (225° Celsius).
  • Mix dry yeast with some lukewarm water and teaspoon of sugar. Set aside until the mixture gets fizzy/bubbly.
  • Peel asparagus and cut off about 1cm (half inch) of bottom. Cut it up in bite sized pieces and cook in water with a little salt for about 10 minutes (or until almost done).
  • Knead together flour, water, oil, salt and dry yeast. Knead for about 5 minutes. Add more flour if the dough is sticky.
  • Set dough aside and let rise for about 30 minutes (it should about double in size – if it doesn’t, don’t worry, it will still taste good :-)).
  • Roll out dough on a baking sheet lightly covered with flour until you reach your preferred thickness.
  • Spread sauce hollandaise evenly all over the pizza.
  • Add asparagus (and ham) and top off with grated cheese.
  • Bake for about 15-25 minutes (depending on how thick or thin you’ve rolled out your dough). Enjoy!

    • I guess it’s not a traditionally Italian version… your restaurant’s menu sounds amazing. If I ever happen to be in San Jose, I’ll make sure to stop by!
