This was really quite nice. I added some spring onions instead of the chives, and oven-roasted the asparagus. The crust is different, but it's nice and crispy - my 3-year-old was able to pick it up and eat like a slice of pizza. I will definitely make this again, with whatever vegetables I have on hand.
