Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 2 cups (2-inch) slices asparagus (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced ready-to-use sun-dried tomatoes

  • 1 (8-ounce) portion fresh pizza dough
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded fontina cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
  2. 2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 5 minutes or until browned. Add asparagus to pan; cook 5 minutes or until asparagus is crisp-tender. Stir in tomatoes and salt.
  3. 3. Roll dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface; brush each side of dough with 1/2 teaspoon remaining oil.
