Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza

Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza by Alison's AllspiceI first decided to put asparagus on a pizza simply because I already had some in the fridge.  It was going to be a sun-dried tomato, artichoke, and asparagus pizza.   As life goes, that didn’t happen.  I ran out of sauce, so I ended up using my sun-dried tomatoes in my Asparagus Carbonara recipe.   I hit the drawing board again and decided to try the pizza with a simple white sauce.  This Asparagus Artichoke White Pizza is even better than I had imagined, and a great way to wrap up this years Asparagus Mini-Series!

Pizza Baked Potatoes

Pizza Baked Potatoes

I have a no waste attitude when it comes to food.  I hate throwing out even the littlest bit of food just because it doesn’t have a purpose, or because I think there isn’t enough left to use.  With a little bit of effort and planning you can prevent this kind of waste.  Today’s Pizza Baked Potatoes was created because I had a small amount of pasta sauce that was not going to go down the drain.  The recipe was so good that I made it multiple times and perfected the seasonings, and today I’m sharing it with you!

Cilantro Pesto Pizza

Cilantro Pesto Pizza

I didn’t use to like cilantro.  In every bite of a dish utilizing cilantro, all I could ever taste was the cilantro.  It was too strong for me, and still is if I don’t cut up the leaves into tiny little pieces.  I learned to start to like cilantro when I was introduced to the Tandori Naan Pizza’s cilantro pesto pizza with tomatoes.  This recipe is a mimic of that frozen pizza.  I don’t make it on naan bread, and I don’t always add tomatoes, but this recipe still has the punch of flavor that I loved from the frozen pizza!
