Oh my, this talk about Brie en Crote with Peaches and Bacon and take offs from Cis's idea took a turn this a.m. with a newsletter for this recipe......Sounds so good.

Think the softer Parmesan, I mentioned picking up from goldenglencreamery.com

Yield: 1 10-inch pizza
Menu Price: $14.50; Food Cost/Serving: 23%

Pizza dough, prepared 5 Oz
Cornmeal or semolina as needed
Fresh ricotta calabra 3 Oz
Lemon, microplaned zest of 1 each
Garlic clove, large, minced 1 each
Extra-virgin olive oil as needed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Asparagus spears, fat, large 3 each
Pancetta, julienned 2 Oz
Parmigiano-Reggiano, grated 1 TBS
Fresh basil chiffonade as needed

1. Roll the dough on a peel sprinkled with cornmeal or semolina into a 10-inch circle. (The crust will be thin.)

2. Combine the ricotta, lemon zest, garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper to taste in a mixing bowl. Cut thin, full-length shavings of the asparagus with a knife or mandoline; toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.

3. Spread the ricotta mixture over the dough to form a thin layer. Arrange the asparagus over the ricotta. Sprinkle the pancetta on top and finish with the Parmigiano-Reggiano. Bake on a sheet pan or directly on the oven rack until the crust is browned and the cheese melts, about 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and serve.

While Laura's buying more scallops, I'm off to buy more of this Parmesan.
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.
