These cute mini pizzas are topped with asparagus, walnuts, mint, orange and smoked mozzarella cheese for what may sound like a crazy combination of pizza toppings, but try it for yourself. The mix puts a downright delicious spin on pizza night. Source: EatingWell Magazine, March 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 500 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Divide dough into 6 portions; stretch each piece into a 7-by-3-inch oval. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Toss asparagus with oil on a second baking sheet; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake the dough on the top rack and the asparagus on the bottom rack for 3 minutes.

  • Press the dough with the back of a spatula, if necessary, to flatten slightly. Sprinkle cheese over the top. Scatter the asparagus and scallions over the cheese.

  • Bake the pizzettes on the top rack until the cheese is melted and the crust edges are golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, walnuts, mint and orange zest.
