Ramp Pizza with Prosciutto and Mushrooms

Ramps are an early spring crop also called "wild leeks". They have a distinct taste some-where between garlic and onion. That's one pictured on the plate. We put a dozen of them that had been well cleaned into a food processor along with 1/3C olive oil and blended until smooth. Spread the ramp mix on a pizza crust and add your favorite toppings. (We used prosciutto, fresh tomatoes, sauted mushrooms and mozzarella cheese). Things such as pepperoni or spicy sausage would overpower the taste of the ramps but anchovies would be nice.
