Asparagus Ribbon Pizza

Enter the Hangout

Last month I shared Cauliflower and Cheese with you all and I heard back that you liked it because it was a new way to eat it and it had cheese… who doesn’t love cheese! This recipe also has cheese and is loaded with vegetables. We got a bunch of asparagus with our produce co-op and I wanted a different way to use it, so this is what I came up with.

Asparagus Ribbon Pizza
First, you’ll need a pizza crust, whatever recipe you like, if you don’t have one – here’s mine: click here.
I brushed the crust with some olive oil,
Just a tablespoon.
Next you’ll need some herb cream cheese spread. I made my own.
Spread over the crust.
Top with tomato slices (I didn’t put them on half due to taste preferences)
I also used some garlic slices.
They cook to be less potent than fresh, but can still give you some great breath.
Just in case you need to keep those vampires away… or something like that.
You can leave the garlic out if you prefer.
Top with asparagus ribbons,
For a tutorial on how to make these wonderful looking ribbons,
I used a whole bunch of asparagus on this pizza.
Next, top with some mozzarella cheese.
I used some mozzarella pearls, to try them out.
Regular shredded mozzarella
or fresh mozzarella cheese will work as well.
Bake for 10-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and starts browning.
Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes,
Then cut into slices,
and Enjoy!

PhotobucketCrystal (Crystal’s Cozy Kitchen) is a mom to an active 2 year old son. Since becoming a mom she has learned just how hard it can be to get a toddler to eat healthy. She has always loved to cook and believes that while eating healthy your taste buds should not suffer and neither should your bank account. Crystal is a firm believer in the Family Table and loves to sit down to dinner with her husband and son as often as their schedules permit.

Growing up in a rural area in Utah she learned to love comfort food, but now realizes that most comfort foods can be made healthier. During her childhood she feels that vegetables were almost an afterthought to preparing meals and wants to have them take a more central role on the table.

She and her family have moved 6 times in the last 5 years, lived in two different states and will be moving again once her husband finishes his Masters Degree. She can understand the varying situations of home cooks as she has lived in apartments with small stoves/ovens, no counter space, hardly any cabinets as well as lived in areas where it is impossible to find some ingredients in local stores.
