Asparagus, Feta & Serrano Pizza - A Shortcut to a Deluxe Pizza

Friday nights in our house is nearly always Pizza Night. But after a long week at work, sometimes making my own pizza dough is too laborious even for me. 

Thankfully there are some good quality shop bought pizza dough out there now which take all the hard work out of home made pizzas. Tonight was such a night when the efforts of homemade pizza dough was beyond me. Luckily I had a Jus-Rol pizza dough hidden in the fridge for such a dilemma. 


  • 1 good quality ready made pizza dough
  • 2 tbsp of tomato sauce
  • 4 asparagus spears, ends removed
  • 50g of fresh mozzarella 
  • 50g of feta cheese
  • 3 tbsp of carmelised onion relish
  • Pepper
  • 3 slices of Serrano ham
  • 2 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 wedge of lemon
  • Balsamic glaze

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Lay the pizza dough on a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.
  3. Spread the tomato sauce over the pizza dough.
  4. Scatter the cheeses over the pizza and lay the asparagus spears over the cheese.
  5. Dot the relish in between the spears of asparagus and liberally grind black pepper over the pizza.
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  7. Divide the Serrano ham over the cooked pizza and scatter with some freshly torn basil.
  8. Serve with the lemon wedge and drizzle over the balsamic glaze.
