Asperagus and Mushroom Cashew Pizza

It was an absolutely disgusting day in Montreal today. The weatherman said light snow... the reality was less than light, It was pretty rough.

So I decided to make a springish pizza to cheer myself up! (Snow not being my favorite thing on the planet... actually it's one of my least favorite things, which begs the question why I live in Canada)

Asperagus and Mushroom Cashew Pizza
Pizza dough for 1 pizza
Cashew Cheese (I used the recipe linked!) Grated
Stalks of Asparagus
Tomato Sauce
Mushrooms , sliced
Basil, Salt, Pepper, Oregano

Preheat the oven to 425.
Roll out your dough on a pizza tray, with a bit of cornstarch if you want. Bake for 5 minutes to sort of firm it up. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Take your stalks of asparagus, and cut off the bottom inch. Chop into little chunks, and leave the tops a few inches long, to put on the top as decoration :)
Spread the pasta sauce over the dough, and top with the mushrooms, and asperagus. Then top with the cheese and spices.
Arrange the asparagus tops on top, and return the pizza to the oven. Bake for 25-35 minutes, until cheese is browning. Take it out, cut it, and enjoy!
