Shaved Asparagus Pizza

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!
