Start by prebaking the crust.  This thin crust by Pillsbury is my very favorite, it’s so easy to use and bakes up thin and crispy for the perfect vehicle for tasty toppings

Spread a nice layer of sauce on the baked dough

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Alfredo Pizza

  • Servings: varied
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

1 refrigerated pizza crust dough {I prefer Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza dough, it has great flavor}

1 15 oz jar Classico Lite Asiago Romano Alfredo Sauce

4 oz prosciutto slices

20-24 asparagus spears

4 oz shaved or grated Parmesan

1/4 cup pine nuts, optional

Unroll crust onto a baking sheet and prick all over with the tines of a fork.  Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes until just starting to turn golden and crisp.  Remove from oven and spread with a layer of Alfredo sauce, using about 3/4 of the jar.

Break tough ends off of asparagus, rinse and wrap in a clean towel.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Remove and wrap in a piece of prosciutto and lay on top of Alfredo sauce.  Top with pine nuts if desired. Sprinkle Parmesan over top and then dollop remaining sauce on wrapped spears.

Return pizza to oven and bake for 10-15 more minutes until topping is hot and bubbly, and cheese is melted and crust edges are golden brown.  Cut into large squares for serving, or small squares for appetizers.

Note: the prosciutto and Parmesan make this a salty pizza.  To reduce saltiness use Fontina or Monterey Jack cheese
