I was lucky enough to be able to make this pizza in a brick oven that my Opa built decades ago. I made a few pizzas using this crust and sauce recipe. It’s a fabulous recipe, and the topping options are endless. Here’s a vegetarian one that was particularly delicious.
What you need:
red onions, thinly sliced
mozzarella cheese, grated
pizza crust (see link above, use your own recipe, or buy some pizza dough if you can find it in the freezer section)
pizza sauce (see link above)
What you do:
1. Assuming you’ve already prepared your pizza dough and sauce, preheat your oven to 500-550F. If you are using a brick oven you’ll need to start preparing it hours earlier.
2. Form your dough and place it on a well-floured baking pan. Spread some tomato sauce over the crust.
3. Scatter the mushrooms and red onions, then place the asparagus on top. Add some cheese and it’s ready to go into the oven – just don’t add too many toppings or you’ll have a soggy pizza.
4. Bake for 6-7 minutes – the cheese should be bubbling, and the crust should be crisp and golden.
