What You'll Need (for 2 to 4 small pizzas)
For shaved asparagus alone:
• A vegetable peeler (a Y-peeler works best)
• 1 to 2 bunches medium asparagus (about 1 pound each)
For a Bird's Nest pizza:
The above plus
• 2 to 4 dough portions (try Lahey's dough from his book My Bread)
• Tomme de savoie cheese
• Quail eggs (4 per pizza. Chicken eggs work as well; just use 2 per)
• Black truffles
• Extra-virgin olive oil
For step-by-step visuals, peep the gallery above, but the takeaway here is using shaved asparagus on a pizza.
Lahey also serves a shaved asparagus salad with avocado, sea salt, a squeeze of lime juice, and mint. It's a great combination. Both asparagus and avocados are totally in season right now. What are you waiting for?
