Recipe: Shrimp Scampi Pizza

I made this very strange and special pizza for my best friends birthday and it was surprisingly good! It seems like a sort of weird pizza because the sauce on it is just kind of butter and garlic but I guess you can’t really go wrong with those flavors. The only downside to this recipe is that it did take a lot longer than regular pizza so it’s for special people and occasions only.

Scrimp Scampi Pizza
Serves 4
  1. 1 recipe of pizza dough
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 2 tablespoons butter
  4. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 1/4 cup white wine
  6. 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  7. 1 lb shrimp
  8. 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  9. 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  10. 3/4 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  11. tomatoes, thin sliced (optional)
  12. red onions, thin sliced (optional)
  1. In a large skillet, melt butter and oil over medium-low heat then add in the garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and wine and simmer for 3 minutes.
  2. To the pot add shrimp and cook only until pink, about 60 seconds. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Roll out pizza dough and brush the dough with the garlic-lemon sauce from pan.
  4. Top pizza with shrimp, optional vegetables, cheeses and seasoning.
  5. Slide pizza into a 425 degree oven and bake for 15 to 17 minutes, until cheese is fully melted and browning.
