Shrimp and pesto pizza

This dinner is one of our favorites – it only has a  few ingredients and you can throw it together quickly.  I’ve been cutting the shrimp together longwise – they cook faster and cover the service better.  If you don’t like shrimp, you could top the pesto with slices of rotisserie chicken as an alternative.

Shrimp and Pesto Pizza

  • 1 prepared pizza crust (Boboli or other brand)
  • 1/4 cup pesto (purchased from grocery store or your own homemade)
  • 3/4 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup cup shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)

Preheat oven to 450.  Top pizza crust with pesto and then spread shrimp across pesto.  If desired, top with mozzarella cheese.  Cook about 10 minutes – shrimp should be pink and pizza should be hot.  Slice and serve.

Here it is getting ready to go in the oven:

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
