  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook for a few minutes to release most of the grease, but do not cook until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  3. Spread the pizza crust out on a pizza pan or large baking sheet. Top with mozzarella cheese, bacon pieces, asparagus, and tomatoes. Dot with goat cheese, then season with red pepper flakes and black pepper.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the crust is golden brown underneath when you lift it up to take a peek. Let cool for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

We usually make this on a large flatbread instead of a pizza crust. It makes a great neopolitan like pizza that way. Nice and crispy! We sometimes add pesto too! We do everything by sight. Meaning we add as much cheese or tomatoes as we want so that it is never too cheesy or has too many tomatoes. The bacon is great with all the flavors.

I definitely liked the ingredients (though I couldn't find chevre and made the poor choice of substituting feta). However, because the recipe doesn't say what size pizza crust to use, I ended up with too much topping on too small a crust, making my finished product WAY too thick with cheese and just a little overwhelming. I still can't say what size crust is meant to be used, but my advice is to get a really BIG one.

This is a terrific pizza. The combination of ingredients is both savory and spicy, and the chevre cheese on top is to die for! Thanks for the recipe.

Pretty dang awesome. Taste is certainly 5 stars, but the proportions are way off, so thats why I'm giving it the 4 star rating. I'll definitely be making this again.

excellent change up on a pizza

Wow! I've made this about 5 times now and every time, it is great! I do made a couple minor adjustments...I use about 6 oz of a block of mozzarella cheese and shred it myself (MUCH better than bagged pre-shredded cheese, totally worth the extra time/effort, trust me) and a small log of goat cheese (4 oz), and this is PLENTY of cheese for us. I don't measure the red pepper flakes, just sprinkle all around. GREAT combination of flavors!! YUM!!!

We love this pizza and have been making it for years. Don't give in to the temptation to put sauce on it! :)

I made this for myself and my husband who is a chef, and we loved it so much we made it again the next night. Love love love this! One thing to note is one bunch of asparagus lasted us through two pizzas, so don't chop it all at once, try half and see if you need more.
