Toast pine nuts in a hot frying pan or in a oven for a few minutes or until turns light brown; cool. In a food processor, puree basil, garlic, pine nuts, parmesan, olive oil and lemon juice. Leftover pesto can be refrigerated up to a week or frozen for months.


Roast bell pepper, peel, and remove membrane and seeds. Clean asparagus, trim bottoms, brush lightly with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and grill mark.
Spread some pesto over the pizza dough, add mozzarella, chopped bell pepper, ricotta and asparagus.


Position rack in the lower third of oven with an upside-down baking tray or a pizza stone to create more thermal mass. Preheat oven to 550°F/290ºC. Carefully slide pizza onto the pizza stone and bake for about 7 to 10 minutes. Top with some parmesan shavings, pine nuts, fleur de sel and ground black pepper. Enjoy!
