Tortilla pizzas are a go-to in my house weekly.
Sometimes I am boring and top them with roasted vegetables and marinara.
But then there's other times.............
Asparagus, Caramelized Onion, and Egg Tortilla Pizzas
3- 10" flour tortillas
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and steamed
1/2 tsp salt, divided
Dash ground black pepper
1 Tbsp pine nuts
1 clove garlic, pressed and minced
1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 tsp olive oil, divided
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut steamed asparagus spears in half crosswise. Set the tips aside and place the stems into a food processor along with 1 tsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp salt, pine nuts, and garlic. Mix until a puree is formed, adding a bit of water if necessary to form a thick saucy consistency. Set aside.
In a skillet, heat remaining 1 tsp olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and saute until golden brown, reducing heat if necessary to prevent burning (~10 minutes).
Place tortillas onto a baking sheet. On each tortilla, spread 1/3 of the asparagus pesto, 1/3 shredded Parmesan cheese, 1/3 of the asparagus tips, and 1/3 of the caramelized onions. Crack one egg onto each pizza, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until tortilla is rigid enough to transfer directly to the baking rack. Transfer each pizza and cook for additional 3-5 minutes, watching closely, until each pizza is golden brown and egg is cooked through.
Remove pizzas from the oven, slice, and serve.
