Asparagus, Asiago, and Fontina Cheese Pizza

Asparagus, Asiago, and Fontina Cheese Pizza: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 10 min.
Cook Time: 15 min.
Total: 25 min.
Kris Mullen
The rich earthy flavor of Fontina and the slightly nutty flavor of Asiago pair wonderfully with the mildly bitter taste of asparagus.

Ingredients

  • 1 16-oz package of your favorite pizza dough
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 cup Fontina cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup Asiago cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2 inch pieces

Directions

  • Place a pizza stone on the bottom rack of your oven and preheat to 500. The hotter the oven, the better the pizza!
  • Chop asparagus into inch pieces, discarding the woody base. Set aside.
  • Using the toss-and-turn method, stretch out your pizza dough until it is as thin as it will get without breaking apart. Place dough on heated pizza stone and bake for about 7 minutes.
  • Remove the pizza stone from the oven and quickly brush with olive oil and minced garlic. Sprinkle pizza with red pepper flakes and freshly ground pepper. Spread the fresh asparagus pieces across the dough and top with Fontina and Asiago cheese.
  • Return pizza stone to the heated oven and bake for an additional 7 minutes or until the crust is lightly charred and the cheese is bubbling.
  • Let cool, slice, and enjoy.
