Seafood on pizza can go two ways. It can either be amazingly delicious...or not so great. Naturally, like most, we were a little skeptical at the idea of taking a classic Italian seafood dish like shrimp fra diavolo and sticking it on a pizza, but let us be the first to say—this pizza is unlike anything you've ever had before! It's spicy, fresh, full of flavor and will leave you craving it days after you've finished the last bite.
- Pizza dough of choice
- olive oil
- 1 lb. large uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
- pinch of salt and black pepper
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup dry white or red wine
- 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 cup Pasta Jay's Classic Marinara
- 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
- grated Parmesan cheese
How To Make
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 425°F.
STEP 2: In a large skillet heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Season shrimp with salt and pepper and saute until just cooked through. Tansfer shrimp to a separate plate and wipe out pan.
STEP 3: Add another drizzle of olive oil to your skillet. Add onions and saute until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add garlic, cooking until fragrant. Next, add the wine and deglaze pan. Once pan has deglazed add tomatoes, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Reduce heat to medium-low, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
STEP 4: Meanwhile, lightly brush your pizza dough with olive oil and evenly coat with Pasta Jay's Classic Marinara. Sprinkle about half of the mozzarella cheese evenly over the top of the pizza. Then evenly spread the tomato and onion mixture on top of the cheese. Add the shrimp in an even layer, and then cover with the remaining mozzarella.
STEP 5: Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until dough has risen and cheese is melted. Remove and garnish with chopped fresh basil and Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
