Pizza... again? I know. We make pizza A LOT. But, this one was kind of special so I thought I would share the recipe :) I have been seeing ribboned asparagus recipes everywhere and just had to try it for myself, beautiful and delicious. I kind of followed this recipe from Smitten Kitchen (which is one of my fav sources for recipes) for the pizza. So here are the recipes, it is summertime officially so fire up your grill and get creative! xo.
Shaved Asparagus Pizza
1/2 Pound Asparagus
Salt + Pepper
Flatten out pizza dough and cover one side generously with olive oil. Set on grill at medium heat until the dough begins to harden for about 5 minutes. Remove crust and flip so that you are adding ingredients on top of the grilled side of the dough. Using a vegetable peeler shave asparagus from the bottom to the tip. Spread a happy helping of Ricotta onto crust and scatter the shaved asparagus on top. Sprinkle with shaved Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Set back on grill for about 5 more minutes until cheese is melted, but bottom has not started to burn. Squeeze lemon on top of pizza and serve!
Grilled Balsamic Artichokes
2 Large Artichokes
Salt + Pepper
Using scissors, snip the pointy ends of Artichoke stems off. Boil on stovetop for 15 minutes or until bottom pierces easily. Remove and drain. Cut artichokes lengthwise. Stir together 2 tablespoons, 3 tablespoons olive oil, pinch of salt, pepper, and a teaspoon of garlic. Pour mixture on top of open side of artichokes. Set onto grill for 6 minutes, 3 per side starting with open side up. Enjoy!
