My Mom has been raving about this shaved asparagus pizza for a while. It’s another gem from Smitten Kitchen. She kept asking, did you try that asparagus pizza yet? I am so glad I finally did! She didn’t mention that I’d have asparagus shreds all over my kitchen counter, but that is a minor annoyance compared to the taste of this pizza. You literally shave the asparagus with a peeler and toss it with olive oil, salt, and pepper. This process takes asparagus from a stalky vegetable to a far more delicate one. And with two different kinds of cheese and a crispy crust, this pizza was just about perfect!

  1. Wow. I need to try this RIGHT NOW. It looks amazing. The restaurant where I used to work made this great asparagus salad by shaving the asparagus the same way. I feel a blog post coming on…

  2. I for one, am quite happy you've mentioned the shaved asparagus pizza. Thanks!

  3. I knew you would like it!
