1 recipe Quick Yeast Dough for Pizza
1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch long pieces
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 large sweet red pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch wide strips
1/2 pound sweet Italian sausage with fennel, casing removed
3/4 cup shredded provolone cheese
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Place the asparagus in a skillet and add 1 cup water. Cook until the asparagus are tender; drain and transfer to a bowl.
In the same skillet add the olive oil and cook the peppers until they soften. Transfer to the bowl with the asparagus.
In the same skillet, cook the sausage until it is no longer pink; season with salt and pepper. Cool.
Divide the dough in half and roll each piece into a 12-inch round. Spread the sausage over the dough rounds. Spread the asparagus and peppers over the sausage. Sprinkle the provolone over all.
Bake until the crust is brown and the cheese has melted. Slice and serve.
