Asparagus Pizza

Adapted (barely) from Real Simple


1lb pizza dough


1 cup part skim ricotta

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1 lb asparagus, halved in both directions

2 cloves garlic, sliced thin

2 cups baby arugula



2 tsp fresh lemon juice

3 tbsp olive oil


Preheat the oven to 400. Prepare 2 baking sheets by sprinkling with cornmeal.

Divide the dough in 4 pieces and shape each piece into a round and place on the baking sheet.

Evenly distribute the asparagus and garlic, then ricotta, parmesan and 2 tbsp of the olive oil.

Bake for 30 minutes, switching the racks of the pans halfway through.

Combine the arugula, lemon juice, 1/4 tsp of kosher salt and pepper, and the last tbsp of olive oil in a  bowl and toss.

Serve each pizza with a heap of arugula.
