Prosciutto Pizza with Lemon, Blue Cheese and Shaved Asparagus

Ok, seriously, hear me out for just a minute. I know you were weirded out by the “lemon” word.

Yes, there is, in fact, lemon on this pizza. Now, don’t run away, please – you need to see this through.

Do you trust me?

If not, you should by now. I haven’t betrayed you yet, have I?


Our relationship should be solid by this point.



I have been planning this pizza in my mind for about 5 years. I can’t explain why, I just know I have been. I have to tell you that when I tasted it I was so incredibly satisfied with the outcome that I was scared I would eat the whole pizza before I got pics.


Imagine the tartness of lemon combined with salty blue cheese, prosciutto, and slightly nuttiness of the asparagus. Come on, give the tart little lemon a chance.


See, I don’t steer you wrong, do I?

    Love the new blog look – so chik chic! As for this pizza well the picture has just killed me…. ok I’m back up off the floor and as usual, always regretting that I’m not in Alabama in the house next door. XO Hugs too.
