"Sweet Vidalia Primavera Pizza" below:
Sweet Vidalia Primavera Pizza
Appreciating the Spring (“primavera” in Italian) flavors of a sweet Vidalia® Onion, fresh asparagus, and unripened goat cheese, this pizza is also an ideal vegetarian supper.
· 1 1/4 cups grated smoked mozzarella
· 1 cup drained diced canned tomatoes, with Italian seasonings
· 10 thin asparagus spears
· 4 slices (about 1/4-inch-thick) Vidalia® onion
· 3 ounces soft fresh goat cheese
· 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
Heat oven to 400°F; oil a large baking sheet or 12-inch ovenproof skillet. Roll out dough to a 12-inch round, leaving edges thicker to create a crust. Arrange pizza dough on oiled baking sheet or in skillet.
Top dough evenly with smoked mozzarella, leaving about a 1-inch border of crust around the edge; scatter diced tomatoes over cheese. Trim and discard woody ends from asparagus. Cut spears diagonally crosswise into 1 ½- to 2-inch pieces. Combine asparagus pieces and Vidalia Onion slices (separated into rings) in a small bowl; lightly drizzle with olive oil. Spread asparagus and onions on top of pizza.
Pinch or cut off bite-size pieces of goat cheese and scatter on top of vegetables. Sprinkle oregano over all, drizzle lightly with olive oil and bake on lowest rack in oven 20 to 25 minutes, or until crust is dark golden.

"It makes you feel like you have more energy and be more positive to the stressors in the environment. People are more relaxed and ready for the day. It is kind of like a family gathering. We communicate with each other and give each other positives." Doris, Divide, CO
