Homemade Spring Asparagus and Egg Pizza

Asparagus and egg homemade pizza

It's spring and that means soon we will be filling our pantry with lots of fresh vegetables from our local farm. I can not wait.  Lately, i've been seeing a lot of asparagus stocking the shelves at wholefoods. It was time to bring some home and toss it on a pizza.   I saw shaved asparagus pizza a few weeks back on Smitten Kitchen.  Pretty epically beautiful.  We duplicated her efforts and shaved the spring asparagus, but also drop an egg on top mid-way through the baking. The egg makes this baby pop with color and flavor.  So look,  asparagus is starting to come out of the ground for the next few weeks, I highly encourage you to get your asparagus pizza game going, you will love it...
