Shaved Asparagus & Prosciutto Pizza

makes 1 12 inch pizza
recipe adapted from Smitten Kitchen

    • 1 1lb. pizza dough
    • 1/2 lb. asparagus
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • sea salt & fresh cracked pepper
    • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
    • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • 5 slices prosciutto, roughly chopped
    • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
    • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
    • red pepper flakes
    • 2 eggs

Preheat oven to 500F.

Shave the asparagus with a potato peeler into a medium sized bowl. Season with olive oil, salt & pepper and set aside.

Stretch pizza dough into a 14 inch circle onto a pizza pan or baking sheet.  Spread grainy mustard evenly on top of the dough, leaving a 1 inch border for the crust.  Top dough with 3/4 cup cheese followed by garlic, shaved asparagus, prosciutto and scallions. Create two “nests” with the toppings so you’ll have a place to crack the eggs into half way through the baking process.  Top with the remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

Bake in the oven until crust starts to turn golden, about 8 minutes. Crack eggs into the “nests” on the pizza and cook for an additional 6-8 minutes, or until eggs are set and crust is nicely browned. Serve hot.
