getting our greens, part two

Our new favorite allotment dish is Asparagus White Pizza:

While I make the dough, G harvests the new spears, which we wash and trim and toss in olive oil. When the dough is ready, we roll it out and top it with nothing more than sliced fresh mozzarella and the prepared asparagus.

Baked at 260 C on a preheated baking stone, the asparagus roasts perfectly and the crust crisps nicely. Then we just add a twist of black pepper to finish.

So simple and so delicious!


  1. You people are livin' the life! YUM.

  2. Homegrown asparagus - now that really is a treat!

  3. Yummy! That looks delicious! I tried three years running to grow asparagus, but have failed miserably. Going to try again next year I think having seen a demonstration on Gardners world! x

  4. Oh do grow asparagus, if only to make this pizza - I have never tasted better. Highly recomended.

  5. I'd love the recipe for the dough!
