Asparagus and Canadian Bacon Pizza Recipe

What can I say, this recipe has it all:  it is fast, delicious, and creates very few dishes.  This can be made for an easy week night meal, or a fantastic lunch.  Tonight I discovered it is wonderful with New Belgium Hoptober Golden Ale.

Preheat the oven to 425°.  In a medium bowl mix together some asparagus, fire roasted tomatoes with green chilies, Canadian bacon, two heaping handfuls of Italian cheese blend, and a dab of olive oil.

Place two lightly oiled whole wheat tortillas, oil side down on a cookie sheet.  Spread some pesto on the tortillas and divide the asparagus mixture between the two tortillas.
