Don't you just love pizza? It's so yummy I could eat it every week and be perfectly happy. But right about now I need to be shrinking my figure (something about having a baby makes it a little larger than normal...whatever). Ahem!
I tried to healthify pizza a bit last week so I could enjoy one of my favorite foods without feeling too guilty. It was a fantastic success! Pizza for under 300 calories? Yes, please.
Ricotta and Roasted Asparagus on Naan
4 naan flatbreads
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 clove garlic, grated on a zester
1/2 lb. asparagus
2 tsp. olive oil
1 cup mushrooms, halved
kosher salt and black pepper
parmesan cheese (optional)
Preheat oven to 400. Trim asparagus ends and place on a baking sheet along with mushrooms. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes or until asparagus is nearly tender, tossing halfway through so everything cooks evenly. Meanwhile, combine ricotta and garlic in a small bowl.
Remove asparagus and mushrooms from pan. Place naan onto the pan. Spread naan evenly on top of each piece of naan. Layer mushrooms and asparagus on top. Pop the pan back in the oven for another 10 minutes. Serve piping hot with a bit of parmesan cheese on top, if desired.
