"Asparagus on pizza is like painting a room: Something you were used to takes on an unexpectedly enjoyable new life, leaving you satisfied and happy. For those who don't dig cheese from goats, save a square or two without." -Andrew

Freshly Ground Salt and Pepper to taste
Goat Cheese (about 5+ oz)
1 Tbsp Marjoram
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
