It's grilling season and I'm enjoying having my grill out!
I decided to try a new grilled pizza recipe. This one is a little unique. Last summer I showed you my "Original" Grilled Pizza. It is very tasty. To make my new pizza I used the same pizza dough, but different toppings.
And I have to say, it is a bit healthier and quite tasty!! And so colorful!!
It makes me want to lick the computer screen. Mmmm......
I used store bought Pesto. If you don't know what pesto is, basically it is basil, pine nuts, olive oil and garlic. You can make your own pesto or do like I do and buy it! Either way it is delicious.
Grilled Shrimp & Pesto Pizza
1 Pizza Dough Recipe (you could use your own if you want)
12-15 raw shrimp
Artichoke Hearts, canned
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic
1/2 c. fresh spinach leaves
Italian Shredded Cheese
Make your pizza dough and let it rise. Meanwhile, chop onions, artichoke and garlic. Heat up 2 tsp of oil in a pan. Saute onion, artichoke and garlic until tender. Remove from pan. Place cleaned and shelled shrimp in same pan with 1 tsp oil. Cook until no longer pink. Add onion mixture to shrimp.
Heat up your grill. Shape your pizza dough and coat both sides with a bit of olive oil. Turn grill to low and cook your pizza dough. Once mostly cooked, coat dough with pesto. Add toppings as follows: Italian cheese, spinach, onion and shrimp mix. Shred fresh Parmesan on top. Heat until melted or heated through.
