Buffalo Shrimp Pizza

Published July 30, 2013 by jenmatteson

One thing I really like about recipe swaps is not only do you get to try something you might not have otherwise tried, and visit new blogs, but new people are introduced to your blog as well.   A few swaps ago, that had a Bloggers Choice theme, Melissa from I was Born to Cook was assigned my blog.  She made my buffalo chicken pizza, but instead of chicken, she used shrimp.  I thought this was an absolutely genius idea!  I used basically the same recipe as I used before, and substituted shrimp for chicken.

This was so quick and simple to throw together because I used dough that I had previously made, separated into individual pizzas, and froze.  I let the dough thaw, rolled it out, and we were good to go.  I used precooked shrimp and just needed to remove the tails.  Everything else comes together in a cinch.  Except if your grill catches on fire.  Then your crust might get slightly crispy and a nice shade of black on the bottom.  Trust me!

Servings: 1 small pizza

Ingredients:

1 pizza dough (I used 1/4 of my whole wheat pizza dough)
1/4 cup garlic cream sauce
1/2 cup shrimp, deveined, cooked and tails removed
1/4 cup red pepper sauce (I like Franks Red Hot)
2 tbsp onions, diced
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese (Nate used mozzarella-provalone mix)
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped

Directions:

1. Prepare dough according to grilled pizza dough recipewhole wheat pizza dough, your own crust recipe, or use a pre-made crust.  Follow directions until it comes to adding toppings to your pizza.  Spread with garlic cream sauce, leaving just 1/4 – 1/2 inch crust around the outside.

2. In a small bowl, combine shrimp with red pepper sauce.  Sprinkle shrimp evenly around the pizza, then add onions and cheese. Cook according to the crust recipe’s specifications and top is bubbling and cheese begins to turn brown.

3. Before serving, top with cilantro and more red pepper sauce if desired.  Slice and serve.

Herb Chicken Mediterranean Pizza – Papa Murphy’s Copycat

Have you ever been so exhausted and in no mood to make dinner?  If not, I want your life!  

Herb Chicken Mediterranean Pizza

A little over a month ago, I didn’t make it to the gym in the morning, so I had gone after work.  This means I usually don’t get home until close to 7:30, and that’s leaving work early.  Not that 7:30 is late, but for us oldies, we are usually in bed by about 9:00 on weeknights, so dinner is usually on the table by about 6:30.  Lame, I know.  So on that particular evening, I stopped by Papa Murphy’s to get us a take and bake pizza.  The deLITE herb chicken mediterranean pizza sounded interesting, so I went with that.  We both really liked it.  So much so, that not only did we devour the entire thing, but it made its way to our kitchen two more times in the next two weeks.

I figured before we spend all of our wedding savings at Papa Murphy’s, I better try to make this at home.  This is also why I pre-made two batches of pizza dough, separated it, and froze it.  This way I could make pizza at the drop of a hat, instead of waiting a few hours for the dough to rise.  I’m pretty sure this was just as good as the take and bake from Papa Murphy’s!  I rolled the dough out really thin so it was similar to their deLITE crust, and it came out perfectly cracker thin and crispy.  The toppings make this pizza ultra light and doesn’t make you feel bad when you grab yourself a second slice…or forth 😉  Because who wants to deal with that guilt, especially when swimsuit season is just around the corner!  Do yourself (and your body) a favor, skip delivery and make this at home.  You can thank me later!
