Asparagus, Red Pepper & Pine Nut Pizza

Pizza is one of my absolutely favorite meals; it’s an easy go-to when you don’t have a lot of time, but also a dish that lends itself to your creativity and various taste buds! You pack carbohydrates (crust), protein (cheese) and healthy fat (olive oil and/or cheese) all into one bite. You can choose to make it healthy by adding vegetables of all colors and flavors, and it’s easy to adapt to any seasonal produce. Here, I’ve gone with red, green, & crunchy. You won’t be disappointed! You can use a pre-made crust or make your own.

Pie Toppings:
Roasted Red Pepper slices
Asparagus Spears (cut into 1 in pieces)
Pine Nuts
Mozzarella Cheese
Tomato Sauce

Optional: saute the pine nuts in ~1 tsp olive oil + Italian seasoning mix (Dried Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Salt, Pepper) before adding to the pie. Bake until the asparagus spears are soft/cooked through and the cheese is melted.
