I have to send Jamian’s in Red Bank a big thank you for this idea. Their Shrimp Scampi Pizza is amazing. My 12 year old fell so in love with it, I had to come up with my own home version since we don’t live take out distance from Jamian’s.
It is one of the easiest pizzas I’ve ever put together, and according to my family, one of the tastiest. I took the lazy route and purchased my favorite ready made crust from Fabulous Flats. By all means, if you want to go the homemade pizza dough route, have at it. It’s the toppings I’m talking about here.
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon White wine
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese
1 – 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 12 ounce bag of frozen Large Salad Shrimp (the itty bitty kind) 110 – 160 count. Defrosted
Saute butter, oil and garlic for 5 minutes on low. Add the Tablespoon of white wine to deglaze pan and saute for a minute or two. You do not want to brown the garlic. Add shrimp and Italian Seasoning and toss. Saute for 2 minutes.
Spoon shrimp onto pizza dough, sprinkle with Parmesan and top with shredded Mozzarella. (I preheated the pizza in the oven for about 5 minutes at 400 degrees before adding the topping.) You will be tempted to spoon the liquid from the pan onto the crust but don’t do it. The shrimp will release some moisture when cooking and you don’t want a soggy pizza.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until the mozzarella is melted and starting to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut and enjoy.
