Ingredients

  • 8 asparagus spears (about 6 ounces)
  • Prebaked pizza crust
  • 1 cup thinly sliced zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) shaved fresh Parmesan cheese

Preparation


Break off and discard ends of asparagus spears; slice spears diagonally, crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Place a prebaked pizza crust on a shallow baking pan; top with thinly sliced zucchini. Sprinkle with asparagus pieces; drizzle with olive oil. Bake 10-12 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Top with fresh lemon juice, fresh thyme leaves, and shaved fresh Parmesan cheese. Cut into 8 slices; serve.



    Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 10 minutes.

    Baked to Perfection: To make our pizza, we used Fabulous Flats for the crust and baked it in a 500° oven on the bottom rack to make it crispy.
