80--- Asparagus, Caramelized Onion, and Egg Tortilla Pizzas

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
Serves 3

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
3 eggs
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.
