So I've already blahed on numerous times about how good C is at making pizza. He really nails it. So I never complain when he wants to make pizza, even if it is a day after our visit to Beccofino- you guessed it, to eat pizza. A pizza weekend- sounds good to me!
Aside from his margherita pizza, most of C's pizzas usually contain meat. He's just that kind of guy. Even though he does like to experiment, he was a little reluctant to try making me this asparagus pizza that I found on an American blog- A Country Farmhouse. I found this blog courtesy of the gorgeous Digella featuring a couple of her favourite blogs. Just going to put it out there, that one of them was mine, so was truly chuffed about this! Thanks Digella and thanks for pointing me in the direction of A Country Farmhouse- it is a truly gorgeous blog.
Back to the pizza! So C was commissioned to make the Asparagus pizza, a margherita and also another general creation that had various toppings including ham off the bone and olives. They were all great!
The sauce was slow cooked with a whole heap of garlic and red wine. It had so much depth, and was such a hit, I have requested this sauce be used on every other pizza in the future. C and L both agreed!
I'm just going to post a couple of happy snaps of the pizzas that L took with his new camera (which I have considered stealing). The recipe for the asparagus pizza can be found at A Country Farmhouse - with the only difference being that I used baby asparagus, and C used sauce on the pizza, wheras the original recipe did not. I also salted my asparagus because it just tastes sooo much better. The bases weren't as thin as they usually are- a result of another of C's experiments. He continually tries different sauces, and bases hoping he will one day find the ultimate combo. So far he has gone pretty close- and the red wine sauce i've tried.
I also decided to makes some home made lemonade as I had an excess of lemons and I LOVE homemade lemonade. Gee- I'm getting hungry posting about this pizza- and may just have to go and eat some lunch to persuade my stomach to stop demanding it!
I might pop the recipe up for the sauce a little later on when I can find it! Happy viewing.
