Fresh Asparagus Pizza Your Kids Will LoveMacki West
What’s the one food just about every kid loves? Pizza! How many parents can say their kids love asparagus? Not many. Well, I’ve got one kid that loves pizza and one kid that loves asparagus. To please everyone and make one simple meal, we decided to put our farm fresh asparagus onto yummy homemade pizza. It was a huge hit, even with my non asparagus loving kid and non pizza loving kid! My kids had fun building their own and piling on stacks of sliced asparagus. They named their creations green haystack pizzas. Adorable and delicious – my kids and the pizza.
Naan bread – one for each person
2 bunches of asparagus washed and stems broken off
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. I use frozen naan and place it directly into the oven for about 7 minutes or until it begins to get crisp, but it still soft in the center. While the naan is cooking blanch the asparagus. I like to place the asparagus in a covered microwave safe dish for one minute and allow it to sit for at least an additional 5 minutes. For extra deliciousness I put the asparagus in a saute pan with olive oil a sprinkle of garlic and salt and pepper and sauté for 3 minutes over medium high. Remove the naan and spread sauce, sprinkle with mozzarella, place the asparagus on the cheese and top with parmesan. Cook for 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before serving the littles.
