Sometimes you have to think outside the pizza box. This Yam and Asparagus Pizza was developed in my home kitchen. I had fresh asparagus and yams that I didn’t want to go to waste, so that is when I became creative! I had a pre-made crust too which I wanted to use.
I started by heating the yams in the microwave. I let them cool completely, then mashed them. I cooked the asparagus in the oven with olive oil. Then I assembled the pizza.
I started by smearing the mashed yam on the pizza crust, and then placing the asparagus all around as you see in this photo. I seasoned the pizza with thyme and sea salt.
I cooked the pizza according to the directions on the box, and then I added shaved Parmesan cheese and balsamic glaze (by Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom – 18 year Traditional Dark Balsamic Vinegar).
The kids loved it! The taste was earthy, healthy, crispy, and bold all in one bite! Homemade pizza is a great way to feed the family and incorporate those veggies. Yummy or should i say Yammy!!!
