Springtime Pizza - total time 35 minutes

Our CSA deliveries started last week and I can't explain how exciting it is to get a cooler full of produce that was just in farm fields the day before.  The only thing more satisfying to eat is something you grew yourself.  Now that we have our CSA deliveries, Green BEAN deliveries, and a garden out back my trips to the grocery store are so quick and only require one bag!

Speaking of our garden... if anyone knows how to get rid of aphids... they seem to be taking over everything!  I have never noticed them on my plants outside before.  Now they have taken over some bushes and a few tomato plants.  Need to get them under control before they do any damage!

Alright, no more talking about bugs...  It is still Spring time even if it is starting to feel like Summer outside.  We got asparagus, spinach, and green onions in our CSA bin this week, so I made some springtime pizza!  Such a simple idea with fresh flavors.  It tasted great right out of the oven... and cold for breakfast this morning.  ;)

1 lb whole wheat pizza dough
.5 lb. asparagus, sliced
1 cup spinach, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 green onions, sliced
3 pieces prosciutto
.5 cup white cheese (like parm, asiago, or gureyre)
olive oil

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees with pizza pan in oven.  Slice asparagus and green onions.  Mince garlic, chop spinach, and shave parm.
2.  Roll out dough on hot pizza pan.  Drizzle olive oil and minced garlic on dough.  Layer on half of the cheese, then asparagus, green onions, spinach, basil, prosciutto, and the remaining cheese.  Top with pepper.
3.  Bake for 25 minutes.
