Alexa’s Spring Pizza

Pizza, Pork

  • Serves 3-4.


  • Dough
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 3/4 Tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 C warm water
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Toppings
  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • 3/4 lb asparagus
  • 1 small bunch green onions
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 oz arugula (2 handfuls)
  • 1/2-1 C basil pesto
  • 4-5 oz fresh goat cheese


Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add water and olive oil and stir mixture into a ball. On a floured surface knead into a ball for about 3 minutes. Lightly oil the bowl and place the dough ball back in, and turn it over so all sides are coated with oil. Cover the bowl in plastic wrap and leave it undisturbed for an hour or two in a warm place. When the dough has doubled in size, roll it out to fit a 12- or 14-inch pizza pan. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cook bacon in a heavy skillet over medium heat until crisp. Chop or crumble the bacon. Discard bacon fat. Thinly slice asparagus lengthwise. Chop green onions and garlic. Heat olive oil in the skillet and add asparagus, onion, and garlic. Cook 3 or 4 minutes, until asparagus is bright green but still crisp. Spread pesto on pizza dough and top with vegetables, bacon, and cheese. Bake for about 10 to 20 minutes: crust should be golden. Cool for a few minutes, top with arugula, and serve. Serves 3-4.
