Pizza is an all-time favorite of mine, because there are so many different combinations you could have. I have wanted to make a breakfast pizza for a while and knew #BrunchWeek would be the perfect time to post. This pizza had to be extra special for this week, and luckily we have Michigan Asparagus and Red Star Yeast as sponsors this year.

I used an ricotta with herbs and cheese as a base, sliced asparagus, eggs and prosciutto to top it off. It is the perfect bite of crunchy, creamy, salty, gooey - basically everything you want in a good pizza. The crust uses Red Star Yeast Platinum Yeast, which gives it a great rise. The recipe I used makes enough dough for 2 pizzas, so I froze the second one for later.
