1 cup (1 1/2-inch) diagonally cut asparagus (about 1/2 pound)
1 (10-ounce) thin Italian cheese-flavored pizza crust (such as Boboli)
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons commercial pesto (such as Classico)

1 cup (4 ounces) pre-shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil


Prep: 8 Minutes
Cook: 17 Minutes

Preheat oven to 450°.

Steam asparagus, covered, 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Rinse under cold running water; drain well, and pat dry with paper towels.

Place pizza crust on an ungreased pizza pan or baking sheet. Lightly coat pizza crust with cooking spray. Spread pesto evenly over crust. Arrange tomatoes and asparagus over pesto. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until cheese melts and pizza is thoroughly heated. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with basil.

Cut into 8 slices, and serve immediately.
