Who doesn’t love eating pizza? Pizza is about the world’s most versatile and acceptable food. Kids love it, adults love it, it can be served as an appetizer, a party food, a full meal. Heck, pizza even makes a good breakfast!

I have had the pleasure of eating pizza in Rome itself and I will tell you, once you bite off a mozzarella and prosciutto pizza in Italy, you may never go back.

Even though I can’t live in Rome and soak up the daily food perfection (and the 10 extra pounds) on a daily basis, I can enjoy a custom pizza at home.

This asparagus pizza with goat cheese is a perfect weeknight escape when you want a quick recipe but still something that has super flavor.

Crunchy pieces of bacon, a mixture of rich cheeses, and a sprinkling of veggies makes this an almost guilt free recipe that will make you come back for a second, or a third, slice.

Meal Prep for Asparagus Pizza

To “crumble” the goat cheese, you flake it off with a fork. You can break apart large pieces of goat cheese that come off the log before sprinkling onto the pizza.

Pizza can be a sensitive recipe to cook. It’s so easy to burn on the bottom or even have issues when you go to serve. Having the right pizza equipment in your kitchen is paramount to making a recipe go easy!

  • Pizza Stone – really helps with crust
  • Pizza Roller – nothing is easier than using a great pizza roller for perfect pieces
