Pizza Lover’s Shrimp Pizza

  • olive oil
  • 1 lb. large uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 12 inch ready-made pizza crust
  • Jalapeños to top it off (if desired!)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Heat 1 Tbsp of oil oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season shrimp with salt and pepper, and add to the skillet. Sauté for one minute, on both sides. Remove and place the shrimp on a separate plate.

Add an additional 2 Tbsp of oil to skillet. Add onions and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes. Add wine, and deglaze pan for one minute. Add tomatoes, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Reduce heat to medium-low, simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.

Brush the top of the pizza crust with 1 Tbsp of olive oil.
Sprinkle about half of the mozzarella cheese evenly on pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border.

Evenly spread the tomato mixture on top of the cheese. Add the shrimp in an even layer, and then cover with the remaining mozzarella. Bake for about 10-12 minutes.

Remove and garnish with chopped fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.
