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!
