  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar; optional

  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil

For the pizza:

Instructions

For the peanut sauce:

  • Using a large to medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients, from the peanut butter to the sesame oil. Alternatively, you can also blend together in a food chopper or mini food processor if desired. You don't want the sauce to be too watery. Make sure it's a nice thick sauce that you can spread on your pizza dough.

For the pizza:

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Roll out your store bought pizza dough and transfer to a baking sheet or pizza stone. Spread on about 2 to 3 tablespoons of the peanut sauce and bake the pizza for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, top with the shaved asparagus, green and red bell peppers and the carrots and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the crust is nicely browned.
  • Remove from the oven. Allow to cool for 1 minute and then drizzle on some olive oil and sprinkle with just a little of each of the fresh cilantro, mint, basil and scallions. You can also sprinkle on come crushed peanuts! Slice, serve and enjoy immediately.
