Ingredients

  • 1 lb pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 lb asparagus trimmed and halved (about 2 bunches)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup shredded fontina cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

Shape dough into ball by pulling sides down and folding into bottom at centre; cover with tea towel and let rest for 20 minutes.

In large bowl, mix asparagus, half of the oil, the salt and pepper; set aside.

On lightly floured surface, shape dough by pressing with fingertips and pulling edges to stretch into 16- x 12-inch (40 x 30 cm) rectangle. Place on cornmeal-dusted baking sheet.

Stir remaining oil with garlic; spread over dough. Top with asparagus, and Fontina and Parmesan cheeses.

Bake in bottom third of 425°F (220°C) oven until crust is golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
