shrimp pesto pizza

i love pizza.

i love the stringy cheese, the sweet and savory sauce and the chewy crust.

it’s spectacular.

i was browsing on pinterest the other day {i’m not sure if it actually was the other day – it’s a phrase i use to describe “some time in the past” it could have been months ago for all i know.} when i came across shrimp and pesto pizza with goat cheese. it looked spectacular, and i wanted it, so i did my own little spin on it.

what you’ll need:
pizza dough {i made my own using this recipe – minus the cheese and sauce and stuff, of course}
4 oz. of basil pesto {it’s about half of this jar. if you make your own, you’re a rock star!}
1/2 – 1 cup of shredded mozzarella {this just depends on your taste}
2 oz. of feta cheese, crumbled or cubed {i used this}
1 cup of medium shrimp, deveined and tails removed
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic

make it:
preheat your oven to 400 degrees. start by making your pizza dough according to the directions that i linked to, or whatever pizza dough directions you find. put it on your pizza stone and set aside. saute the shrimp on medium heat with the garlic and olive oil until slightly under-done about 2-3 minutes – remember, they’ll be baking in the oven too. you can add a smidge of salt and pepper while you’re sauteing if you’d like. it’s not necessary, but it’s just habit for me. take your pesto and spread it on the dough leaving about an inch around the edge. add the crumbled/cubed feta. and the shrimp. and then top it with the mozzarella. pop it in the oven for about 20 minutes or until it’s all melty and bubbly and delicious. enjoy.
