Potato & Asparagus Pizza

Prep Time: 15 min

Cook Time: approx. 15 min

Serves: 4


  • 5 Potato Inspirations™ potatoes (Recipe favorite: Purple Splendor)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 8 oz. (½ lb.) asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced, divided or 1/3 c. red onions
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 1 whole wheat pizza crust
  • 1 ½ c. grated part skim-milk mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled (or 4 oz. cream cheese, thinly sliced)
  • ¼ tsp. fresh ground pepper
  • ½ c. Parmesan cheese, shredded


Preheat oven to 450-degrees. Place potatoes and salt in small saucepan. Bring to boil and boil until potatoes are tender, being careful not to overcook.

While potatoes are cooking, prep asparagus and green onions; set aside. Drain and cool potatoes. Once cooled, but potatoes into thin slices.

Mix 1 tablespoon olive oil and garlic in small bowl. Brush garlic oil over dough/crust. Sprinkle ¾ of green onions over crust, then add mozzarella, leaving ½-inch plain border. Top with potato slices and goat cheese. Toss asparagus, fresh ground pepper and remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in medium bowl. Scatter asparagus over pizza. Sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake pizza until crust is browned and asparagus is tender, about 15-18 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining green onions. Cut into pieces and serve.
