I thought this looked interesting, but I was really impressed by how simple it was to make and how GOOD it tasted! I used young, thin asparagus stalks, so I didn't have any problem with them being chewy or undercooked. Getting the pizza stone HOT first was a terrific way to make the crust nice and crispy. I'll make this again!

This was easy and REALLY tasty! I'll definitely make it again and again and again!

Sounds great, but one small

Sounds great, but one small detail: thin asparagus stalks usually indicate age, not youth. The younger stalks grow thick because they are tough enough to push through the soil to the surface. Older stalks do not have the bulk or strength to push through the soil, so they come up thin. Most of us asparagus growers, therefore, know to choose the thicker stalks for the most flavor.

New family favorite!

We made 4 - 7' pizzas instead of one big one, so that we could "add toppings" tomatos and onions for me! Even the fussy eater loved it! We will make this A LOT!

Super easy to fix, tastes fantastic!

Few recipes that I have tried stand on their own, perfect without alteration, and this is one of them. I used my own recipe for pizza dough and followed the directions exactly. A gorgeous and impressive pizza with healthy aspects and absolutely delicious.

I love this pizza.

I was looking for something to make using in-season asparagus when I came across this recipe. I made a whole wheat dough with a teaspoon of salt-free garlic and herb seasoning. I also sliced the asparagus into long slices, leaving the tips whole. My husband brought me home Fontinella cheese thinking it was the same as Fontina. I see how he could, but it's not. This was a happy "mistake" because I mixed half mozzarella and half fontina which resulted in one delicious pie! We loved it.

Quicker and easier to make than typical pizza.

This was a very quick prep time recipe and incredibly delicious. I increased the amount of garlic and cut my asparagus into half lengthwise...otherwise, I kept the recipe as is...this tasted so good I could have ate the entire recipe myself...used wheat dough from Trader Joe...
