First of all I want you to know that I haven't tried either of these recipes, but they sound so good I know I'll be making them soon. I did tweak both of these because I think changes were needed to make them even better than the original recipes.
Shaved Asparagus and White Bean Salad
Shaved Asparagus Pizza
Pizza Dough of your choice
Olive oil, for brushing
8 oz. asparagus spears
4 oz. fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
3 oz. spreadable garlic herb cheese, such as Boursin
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F for at least 30 minutes. Roll out the pizza dough onto a 12-14 inch pizza pan. Lightly brush the surface of the dough with olive oil.
Cut the tough woody stems off the ends of the asparagus spears. Use a vegetable peeler to shave the spears into ribbons. You likely will not need all of the asparagus, but use more ribbons than you think you need because it will cook down in the oven.
Place the sliced mozzarella over the pizza dough in an even layer. Pile the asparagus shavings over the top of the mozzarella. Dot the surface of the pizza with the garlic herb cheese. Season with kosher salt and pepper.
Bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.
