Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme.  Wait…no, it’s not.  This was sooo delicious!  And sooo simple!!

This pizza was a bit of an experiment, but it turned out wonderfully.  Next time, I think the only change I would make is MORE ASPARAGUS, because I don’t think you can have too much of that…and some spinach, too.  You can really throw on any veggies you’d like, but this is how we made the one shown here.

Simple Asparagus Pizza (with White Sauce)

Dough Ingredients
2 C flour
1 C warm water
1 packet dry active yeast
2 t sugar
1 t salt
2 T olive oil

Sauce Ingredients
1/4 C butter
4 oz. cream cheese (half a pack)
1/2 C milk

Additional Toppings
mozzarella cheese

Make the dough:
Dissolve the yeast in the warm water for 10 minutes.  Meanwhile, mix flour, salt, sugar, and oil.  When yeast is dissolved into water, pour into dry ingredients and mix until you have a stiff dough.  Let rise until double, about 30 minutes.

Make the sauce:
In a sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat, then add cream cheese and stir until melted (you can cut the cream cheese into smaller chunks so that it melts quicker.)  Once cream cheese and butter are melted and mixed, add milk and stir until everything is well mixed.

Assemble and bake:
Spread dough out evenly onto a greased cookie sheet or pizza pan.  (You can grease or wet your hands with water to keep it from sticking to you.)  Spread the sauce over the top, then sprinkle mozzarella (or, if you’re lazy like me, you can cut it in thin slices.)  Add chopped onion and asparagus.  Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until crust is brown.  Enjoy! ♥
