Tired of pepperoni pizza? When we have the grill going, we like to make this recipe. The chewy from-scratch crust is topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, asparagus and ham. We love pizza and when it's made on the grill, it's even better. -M. Woods Springfield, Missouri

  1. In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, yeast, thyme, salt and sugar. Add water; beat until blended. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Brush asparagus with oil; sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Grill asparagus, uncovered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until tender, turning every 2 minutes. Cut into 1-inch pieces.
  4. Punch the dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide into eight portions. Roll each portion into a 6-in. circle. Place dough directly on grill.
  5. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until bubbles form on top. Place toasted side up on two ungreased baking sheets. Top with pizza sauce, asparagus, ham and cheese. Cover and grill 2-3 minutes longer or until bottom of crust is golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.

"This recipe was great! The only thing I did different was use a pizza crust mix that you just add water too(2 packages will make 8 servings) The crust comes out so nice and krispy and it doesn't take long at to grill. My family and I enjoyed the grilled pizza so much we now experiment with different topping combinations."
