THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #10 and Shaved Asparagus Pizza


It's that time of year! Time to check yourself and see if you are HAPPY with those few extra pounds you put on last year or are you ready to get a fresh start and finally get them off! I can tell you I am SO ready to shed these extra pounds. I am not starting off this year on a GO-GET'EM-ATTITUDE. I have an entire house to clean (top to bottom, from my 19 family members staying over for a week, and YES we had a blast); I STILL have not taken down Christmas (I think this is the longest in history for my house); and I am SO SICK (I don't even want to get out of bed) and lastly I am over my head at work from taking the last 2 weeks off for my family cruise (which was alot of fun too!) and the 2nd week was full of Disneyland, Universal Studios and Family Galore! I just need ONE more week and then I will start the new year! (By next weekend I hope to be in a much better place)!!!

Here is a FAVORITE recipe of my twin daughters. They LOVE LOVE to make this pizza anytime day or night! If we have the stuff handy, then for sure this recipe is on the top of the list. It's quick, easy and very healthy!

Shaved Asparagus Pizza
Favorite Pizza Dough
1/2 pound Asparagus
1-2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 pound Mozzarella Cheese, shredded or sliced
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
Black Pepper
1 Scallion, thinly sliced

Preheat your oven to 500, and use a pizza stone if you have one. Prepare asparagus, use a vegetable peeler creating long shavings of asparagus. Toss peelings with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Roll or stretch dough or used premade. Sprinkle dough with both cheeses; pile on the asparagus and scallion Bake for approx 10 minutes.
