Directions

Preheat oven to 425°F. Whisk the eggs and 2 tablespoons milk together in a small bowl. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat the pan and olive oil over medium heat. Add the asparagus and cook 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly softened. Stir in the egg mixture and cook just until set, stirring frequently with a rubber spatula. Do not overcook. Remove skillet from the heat and fold in the chives.

To assemble the pizza, spoon the egg mixture onto the pizza crust. Sprinkle with the mozzarella and bake until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. To serve, top with arugula and drizzle with Sriracha sauce to taste. Cut into 6 wedges before serving with an 8-ounce glass of milk.
