Champagne Shrimp Pizza
The recipe makes one 12" pizza. We used precooked frozen shrimp, which were defrosted before use. You could use uncooked shrimp, but would need to adjust the recipe to include cooking them before topping the pizza. Marinating uncooked shrimp would probably result in more flavor from the dressing being absorbed by the shrimp. We cooked our pizza on a stoneware pizza stone, but you could also use a baking sheet or metal pizza pan.
- 25 medium cooked shrimp tails removed
- 1/2 cup Marzetti Simply Dressed Champagne dressing
- Dough for 1 pizza crust I used this recipe
- 1 cup spinach cut into strips
- 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Marinate the shrimp by placing them in a small dish (I used a loaf pan) and pouring the champagne dressing over them. Allow to marinate in the dressing for at least 30 minutes. If you haven’t already prepped the other ingredients, do so now.
Place the pizza stone in the oven, turn it on to 425 degrees and allow the stone to preheat along with the oven.
When the shrimp are done marinating, roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface into a 12” crust. Remove the stone from the oven (using oven mitts, of course!), and transfer the crust to the stone. Remove several spoonfuls of dressing from the marinating dish and spread the dressing over the pizza crust.
Cover the pizza dough and dressing with the remainder of the ingredients: shrimp, mozzarella, spinach and Parmesan cheese.
Cook the pizza for about 8 minutes, or until done to your liking.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool for a couple minutes, slice and enjoy!
