Asparagus Pizza With Lemon Vinaigrette


  1. 1 package of premade pizza dough
    3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
    1/2 cup ricotta cheese, preferably full fat
    1 bundle of asparagus, thinly sliced
    1 lemon, juiced plus 1 teaspoon zest
    2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
    6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    Pinch of salt
    1/4 cup green garlic or scallions, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 500°F.
  2. On a large cookie sheet lightly covered in flour, prepare the pizza dough. Roll or stretch the dough until it's thin and covers the whole sheet. To prevent large bubbles, prong with a fork, punching small holes, all over the dough.
  3. Place the pizza dough in the oven and cook halfway until it is just golden brown, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Once the dough is golden brown, flip it over to ensure a crispy crust. Top with grated mozzarella, spoonfuls of ricotta cheese, and the sliced asparagus. Cook until the cheese is golden, about 4-6 minutes. If the pizza is not browning, try using the broiler for just a couple minutes but be sure to keep a close watch.
  5. While the pizza is cooking, whisk together lemon zest, lemon juice, and champagne vinegar. Slowly pour and whisk in olive oil until the mixture is emulsified.
  6. Move the cooked pizza to a cutting board and top with lemon vinaigrette and sprinkle the green garlic or scallions over the top.

Makes 8 slices.
