- 1/4 lb proscuitto slices,
- Preheat grill to medium heat.
- In a large bowl, combine 2 Tbsp sun-dried tomato reserved oil and 1 tsp Roma.

- Transfer dough pieces to grill. Cook until undersides are firm and beginning to char, about 2-3 min.
- Using tongs or a large spatula, transfer crusts, grilled side up, back to baking sheet.
- Dividing evenly, top crusts with pizza sauce, ricotta mixture, prosciutto, asparagus, scallions, and sun-dried tomatoes.
- Slide back onto grill and cook, rotating occasionally, until crusts are cooked through and cheese is melted, 3-5 min.
- Transfer pizzas to a cutting board, cut into wedges and serve.
