This is a delicious vegetarian pizza. Roasting asparagus on top of a pizza in a super-hot oven makes it deliciously tender and a bit caramelised. You can use a gluten free pizza base too to accommodate those with gluten intolerances or allergies.
Serves 3-4 (makes 2 pizzas)
Pizza bases (we like 58 Base pizza bases best!)
3 T olive oil, plus a little extra to trickle over.
500g asparagus, trimmed
2 onions, finely sliced
2 cups grated mozarella cheese
3/4 cup grated mature gouda cheese
Salt & pepper
1. Preheat the oven at 200C. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and add the onions. Once sizzling, reduce the heat to low and cook gently, stirring from time to time, until they are soft & golden, about 15 minutes. Season with salt & pepper.
2. Spread half of the onions over each pizza bases, then arrange the asparagus over the top. Scatter the mozzarella cheese & grated gouda over the asparagus. Season with salt & pepper.
3. Add a generous trickle of oil over the pizza and bake for 10-12 minutes until the base is crisp and the asparagus tender.
4. Serve hot, cut into slices.
