Roasted Grape & Asparagus Pizza

I made this several months back when my father-in-law was visiting, and I guess I forgot to post it.   Not for lack of yumminess - I loved the little bursts of flavor from the grapes.  The pre-cooking is important for them to get soft and sugary, so don't skip it!

Brush your pizza crust with an emulsion of lemon olive oil, white balsamic, honey, a touch of mustard and salt. (Salad dressing, basically).  Spoon a few tablespoons of pizza sauce on top of that and spread thinly.

Slice half a bunch of thin asparagus spears into small (1/2 inch or so) pieces. Halve a handful of small red grapes.  Sear first the asparagus, then the grape halves, in just a bit of olive oil on the stovetop.  Top the pizza with asparagus, grapes, dollops of goat cheese, and very finely grated parmesan.  Resist the urge to over-top.

Google the baking time & temp depending on the thickness of your crust, whether you are using a stone, your oven, etc.
