Asparagus Corn Prosciutto Pizza by Cooking with Books

Slowly but surely, the weather is warming up. We’re stripping our winter coats off (literally) and trying to soak up some Vitamin D. Our taste buds are craving for things other than stews and braises; they want crisp spring vegetables, outdoor dining while sipping cocktails on the deck, and pizza! Yes, pizza!

Asparagus Corn Prosciutto Pizza by Cooking with Books

This double cheese pizza – shredded mozzarella over a white parmesan sauce and then topped with fresh spring produce like asparagus will have your taste buds sing of joy! Finish off the winter citrus by using it as a finishing touch to your pizza – a squeeze of lemon on top of this will make the new vegetables pop!

The parmesan white sauce is incredible simple to make and replaces the classic tomato sauce in pizzas. Easy to whisk up and pumped up on flavor with shredded parmesan cheese. It brings a touch of decadent to the simply fresh produce. As you can see, I used store-bought pizza dough, but you can make your favorite from-scratch recipe to make it as well.
