I make a pizza a week (Fridays) - this one was OK, good, not great.
Grilled Pizza with Asparagus and Caramelized Onion
For an out-of-the-ordinary first course, offer guests a wedge of this veggie-topped pizza with smoky flavor from the grill. Start with purchased fresh pizza dough; many supermarkets now offer fresh dough in their delis or bakeries.
