This month, I had the best blog ever to pull a recipe from. At Wholesome RD, I basically just went into a food coma looking at all the fabulous recipes that Erin has made since she started her blog is amazing. I really love the fact that what she shares is pretty healthy. That is why this month, I decided I wanted to try something new and totally different for my palette, so I made her fabulous Shaved Asparagus Pizza. Two words describe this pizza: YUM- MY. 🙂

- Olive oil for brushing
- 8 oz. asparagus spears
- 4 oz. fresh mozzarella thinly sliced
- 3 oz. spreadable garlic herb cheese
- Kosher salt
- freshly ground pepper
- Prepared pizza dough
Preheat the oven and a pizza stone at 500˚ F for at least 30 minutes. Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-14 inch round. Lightly brush the surface of the dough with olive oil.
Cut the tough woody stems off the ends of the asparagus spears. Use a vegetable peeler to shave the spears into ribbons. Be sure to shave all your spears because it will cook down in the oven.
Place the sliced mozzarella over the pizza dough in an even layer.
Pile the asparagus shavings over the top of the mozzarella.
Dot the surface of the pizza with the garlic herb cheese. Season with kosher salt and pepper.
Transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is lightly browned, about 12 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.
