French Pizza with a Canadian Twist
For me, the holiday season is all about getting together with loved ones and creating lasting memories while gathering around some delicious comfort food.
There are a lot of comfort food dishes that can turn an ordinary get together into a memorable meet-up, but none quite like my favourite French Pizza with ham and asparagus.
While inspired by our European friends, this recipe features mouth-watering Canadian Swiss and Brie Cheese that infuses an unmistakable taste of home.
For a truly domestic holiday delight, pair with a light and fruity 2014 Inniskillin Sauvignon Blanc. Perfect for catering to a crowd – no matter how big or small.
1 individual (square) store-bought thin pizza crust
¼ cup (60 mL) béchamel sauce
2–3 oz (60–90 g) cooked ham, sliced
6 asparagus spears, blanched
1/3 cup (80 mL) Canadian Swiss, grated
1 oz (30 g) Canadian Brie, sliced
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
Place pizza crust on a parchment-covered baking sheet.
Top with ingredients, finishing with the Brie.
Bake 15 minutes or until crust is crunchy and the Swiss cheese is lightly browned.
