  • ½ x 25g pack basil
  • 100g ricotta
  • 1 lemon, zest
  • 230g asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Plain flour, for dusting
  • 1 pack The Northen Pizza Co. Original Pizza Dough, defrosted
  • 4 tbsp tomato purée
  • 125g ball mozzarella, roughly torn
  • 6 slices prosciutto, roughly torn


  1. Preheat the oven to 240˚C, gas mark 9. Set aside a few basil leaves, then shred the rest and mix with the ricotta and lemon zest; season. Toss the asparagus with the oil; season

  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one ball of defrosted pizza dough to a 25cm circle and put on a large, lightly floured baking tray. Spread over 2 tbsp tomato purée, scatter with ½ the mozzarella, then spoon over ½ the ricotta mixture. Arrange ½ the asparagus on top and bake for 8-10 minutes until golden. While it’s baking, prepare a second pizza in the same way.

  3. As soon as the pizzas come out of the oven, transfer to a large chopping board and top with the reserved basil leaves and the prosciutto. Serve immediately.

Cook’s tip

Make this pizza meat-free by omitting the ham and baking with chargrilled artichoke hearts instead.
