Asparagus and Pancetta Pesto Pizza

Asparagus and Pancetta Pesto Pizza is fancy for your face. Check out that edamame!

Asparagus and Pancetta Pesto Pizza

This pizza. What is going on here? Other than a pound of shaved asparagus, adorable shelled edamame, and porky pancetta? Pesto sauce. Your mind wants to melt. Let it. Have you ever had asparagus on a pizza? Or edamame? What about pancetta? What is pancetta anyway? I can answer that, it’s fancy bacon. Kind of like prosciutto. Kind of like bacon. It’s bacon.

For the last two weeks, I’ve had an influx of pesto sauce in my house and needed a gateway for getting it into my mouth (#firstworldproblems). Being as it is spring, I was in the mood for a spring-inspired pizza. So I whipped out the ol’  Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix and shaved up some asparagi. It all comes together like a little prayer. You have the fresh parmesan-y pesto with the asparagus ribbons, snappy little edamamers and the salty, oh-so-fatty pancetta. It’s like a bloomin’ circus in your mouth.

Remember when I made that Spring Salad with Shaved Asparagus and Lemon-Parsley Dressing? Similar idea. Asparagus is so fun when it’s all ribbon-ed up.

Absolutely! You need to get all them vitamins in your system, and in order to do so, you need to eat all the veggies...with the pizza on the bottom...of course!

So much green on this pizza!!! I love it. And I'm sure putting pancetta on the.boy's half would convince him to love it as well. Win/win.
