Recipe: Shrimp Scampi Pizza

This is a delicious, easy recipe your whole family will gobble up.  Lots of garlic (12 cloves!), olive oil and shrimp flavour in this pizza.  Next time I'm going to try making it on thin crust whole wheat dough.  I've been experimenting alot lately with tomatoeless pizzas (don't worry, we still love tomatoes) and have found some yummy recipes and will be sharing more soon.

from Rachael Ray

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
12 cloves garlic, 8 smashed and peeled and 4 finely chopped
1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, trimmed
One 15-ounce container ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling
2 pounds shrimp—peeled, deveined and chopped
Salt and pepper
1 baguette, split lengthwise and quartered crosswise

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Cook the smashed garlic until golden, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the garlic to a food processor; reserve the olive oil.

Add the parsley to the garlic in the food processor and pulse to finely chop; set aside 1/4 cup. Add the ricotta and parmesan to the food processor; pulse to combine.

Preheat the oven to 500°. In the same skillet, heat the reserved olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until opaque, about 5 minutes. Stir in the reserved 1/4 cup parsley-garlic mixture.

Spread the cheese mixture on the cut side of each piece of bread and arrange on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. Spoon the shrimp mixture on top and sprinkle with more parmesan. Bake until the cheese is melted, 7 to 10 minutes.

Storms rolling by last night.. creepy but beautiful, eh?


  1. These look great. I too have been making a lot of tomato-less pizzas lately. They are lighter somehow and I like them.

  2. This looks REALLY good! I love shrimp on my pizza but have never made a homemade version. Oh my gosh, I love the pics - I assume that's the view from your house? Lucky you!!!

  3. I've never had shrimp on pizza. it sounds great.
    I love the creepy storm shots.

  4. What a fabulous recipe. I love shrimp in everything save desserts and am quite content to give up tomato based pizzas. Yours looks wonderful. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  5. I would totally make this if I wasn't deathly allergic to shrimp. It looks so tasty!!

  6. I love pizza with seafood, the marinara. You could add octopus.
    Savoring the last Gulf Shrimp in my freezer since I won't buy imported ones.

  7. Oh my goodness...this looks and sounds delicious! Adding this to the menu this week!!

  8. Awesome!!! Those pictures of the storm are so beautiful. Is that a view from near your house? If so, how nice it must be to wake up to such a view every morning! By the way, I love shrimp on pizza. The ricotta is a nice addition.
