Step by step
Prepare pizza dough according to your preferred recipe. (Find my pizza dough recipe here.)
Allow dough balls to rest, lightly coated with olive oil to prevent dry crust formation.
Wash the asparagus thoroughly, ensuring the ends are not woody. Snap off the ends where they naturally break.
Peel the thicker stalks if necessary. Fresh garden asparagus may not require peeling, as it's usually tender.
Roll out the pizza dough using your hands or a rolling pin, and place it on a pizza pan or baking paper.
We prefer baking on parchment paper, following Gennaro's pizza recipe method.
Spread 2 tablespoons of pesto sauce over the pizza dough.
Evenly distribute grated mozzarella or mozzarella slices on the pizza.
Add asparagus, cut into smaller stalks, on top.
Alternatively, arrange whole asparagus stalks.
Optionally, add thinly sliced ham like prosciutto cotto on the asparagus.
Serve the asparagus pizza hot and enjoy this delicious and unique dish!
