I love a good pizza recipe! We loved loading this up with fresh veggies, especially this time of year! This recipe is adapted from Pink Parsley.
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
salt and pepper
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
3/4 cup milk
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 pizza dough recipe (this one or your favorite!)
3 thinly sliced asparagus spears
2/3 cup chopped fresh spinach
1/3 cup finely chopped vidalia onion
4 sliced baby portobello mushrooms
1 1/2 cup freshly shredded mozzarella cheese
Heat oven to 425. Prepare your pizza dough according the recipe and roll it out. Brush with olive oil and place in the oven for 4-7 minutes then remove and set aside. In a sauce pan melt the butter. Whisk in the flour and let cook and bubble for 1 minute while you continue to whisk. Slowly whisk in the milk. Stir in the garlic and continue to whisk as it thickens up. Once it's thickened whisk in 1/3 cup of parmesan cheese then remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Spread the sauce onto the pizza, you may not need all of it. Layer the spinach, onions and asparagus. Top with mozzarella and then add the tomatoes and mushrooms. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
