Prepare your pizza dough ahead of time. Our guide to making the perfect Classic Pizza Dough covers everything you need to know.
For the sauce for this pizza, we recommend preparing our easy Classic Pizza Sauce. With a hint of garlic, salt and basil, it's the ideal pizza sauce that will help to bring out the flavours in the other ingredients used here.
Place the vegetables in a roasting tin and toss in oil, herbs, and seasoning. Place in the oven while it's still preheating. Cook for a couple minutes until soft and browning nicely. Remove and let cool.
Using a small amount of flour, dust your Ooni pizza peel. Stretch the pizza dough ball out and lay it out on your pizza peel. With a large spoon or ladle, spread an even layer of pizza sauce evenly over the base. Top with mozzarella cheese, asparagus, and sweet potato.
Slide the pizza off the peel and into your Ooni pizza oven. Cook for 1-2 minutes, making sure to rotate the pizza regularly to ensure an even cook.
Once cooked, remove the pizza and top with an even scattering of crumbled feta cheese. Slice and serve right away!
