Seriously… if there’s 2 things that I love on this earth it’s cheesy pizza and shrimp. It’s the best of both worlds here, people!
And if your shrimp are already peeled and deveined, this recipe comes together in just 25 minutes. I used a pre-made crust instead of dough just to make sure my shrimp wouldn’t be overcooked and dry. The scampi sauce helps to keep the shrimp moist and the secret is sautéeing the shrimp just until pink before placing them on the pizza.
Everyone will think you made a gourmet pizza in less than 30 minutes. Enjoy!Print
