If you think red onion is delish, get excited.
If you like pizza with lots of parmesan, get excited.

Shaved Asparagus and Red Onion Pizza
1 batch of your favorite pizza dough*
3/4 cup cream cheese, room temperature
to taste: dill, pepper, garlic salt, italian seasoning (or your preferred seasoning)
parmesan and mozzarella cheese
8 to 10 asparagus stalks
1 small red onion
prepare dough and preheat oven to 400 degrees. combine cream cheese with dill, garlic salt, and other desired seasonings. on a cutting board, lay asparagus stalks flat and holding onto the tough end of the spear, use a vegetable peeler to make long shavings. discard tough ends, toss shavings with a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper, and set aside. thinly slice red onion, set aside. brush a large baking sheet with olive oil, and stretch dough out in the pan. pre-bake for 4-5 minutes. spread the cream cheese mixture over the dough, then sprinkle with parmesan and mozzarella. arrange asparagus and red onion on top of cheese. bake about 20 minutes more, or until "puffy" and golden brown.
*lately i've been making the non-deep dish version of this recipe and using it for everything. just stretch the dough out onto a big baking sheet instead of using cake pans.
