I made you pizza. Fridays should always be pizza days.
Or in my case, apparently everyday should, since I’ve literally eaten this pizza everyday since I made it. Still hasn’t gotten old. It’s that good.
Plus, there’s nothing better than sitting on the couch eating a piece of this pizza while binge watching HBO shows. I just started watching Girls, yesterday (*ahem* and I am already halfway through Season 2…), and I hate it and love it at the same time. But, I actually cannot stand the character, Hannah. I find her absolutely unbearably selfish. Is this a common opinion? I don’t even know since I’m so new to this show. But I actually totally love most of the other characters. Do yo guys watch this show? Who do you like best?
I get way too into shows, way too quickly…
But this pizza! It was inspired by, and adapted from, one of my favorite food blogs, How Sweet It Is. She makes the best stuff. Like a pizza with ricotta and asparagus on it. Mine’s slightly different but so super good!
It starts with the crust. I really wanted a thicker and fluffier crust than that of my BBQ Chicken & Cheddar Pizza, for this one because well…I’m on a fluffy bread kick. The dough recipe is only slightly different, but I definitely left it a bit thicker when rolling it out.
The dough is rubbed with some olive oil, then spread with a super tasty mixture of ricotta and garlic whipped in a food processor. The toppings include a layer of nutty gruyere cheese, asparagus ribbons, and just a sprinkling of mozzarella.
Because you guys know I love spice, I topped mine with some red pepper flakes…
Um, and then some sriracha because I’m crazy and nothing is ever spicy enough
…but you totally don’t have to. Mikey suggested a drizzle of balsamic reduction, which I think would be awesome! Someone try that and report back, please!
Oh, and FYI this pizza is also incredible cold, juuust in case you were wondering 😉
