Dinners that hold

I had tennis tonight.  I don’t like to eat before I play and Keith doesn’t like to wait until I get home to eat.  Pizzas offer a good solution of something that I can assemble before I go, he can heat and eat and I can quickly reheat when I get home.  The shrimp and pesto pizza is one of our favorites.  Keith likes mozzarella cheese on his half, I leave it off of mine.  I’ve taken to cutting the shrimp in half – they cook faster and cover the pizza better.

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 and cut in half lengthwise
  • 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.

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.
