Shaved asparagus sourdough pizza!!! Yum!! Spring is here and our asparagus is up and available!!! This is one of our early Spring ‘faves’ that signifies that, yes, the next growing season is finally here!!
The basic recipe I follow is found here. With a few additions and alterations(!), this is the final look………
Preheat your oven, for at least 20 minutes, to 350F (convection) or 375F w/o convection.
Several spears of fresh asparagus…shaved (using a peeler).
2 cups rotisserie chicken…chunky chopped
4 oz. mini bellas mushrooms, sliced
Garlic-herb (cream) cheese spread.. 4 to 5 ounces…softened
8 ounce ball fresh mozzarella, sliced thin (I use a wire cheese slicer)
Freshly cracked pepper
olive oil….to lightly oil the stoneware.
Here is where I change the recipe directions a bit from the site I referenced at the beginning of this post. After placing the dough in the oiled pan, I spread the garlic/herb spreadable cheese over the crust.
Evenly distribute the sliced mushrooms next.
Then the chicken pieces.
Next, the shaved asparagus and top with the mozzarella.
Let it rest (I take it out of the pan and transfer it to a cooling rack to rest) for 5 min. I like pizza sauce for the crust so I have a squeezable bottle in the ‘frig at all times!!!
Enjoy!!!!! Any questions, let me know.
