Grilled Shrimp & Spinach Pizza

Written by Jen Sill

Summer is the perfect time for grilling!  Here’s a non-traditional pizza recipe that I just fell in love with: 

 

Ingredients

  • 8 ozs cream cheese, soften
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise 
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 bag fresh spinach
  • 1 pizza crust – prebaked
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • 1.5 bell peppers (small, sliced)
  • 8 ozs shrimp (small, shelled)
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese

 

  1. Preheat grill to 425.
  2. Saute fresh spinach in a pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  
  3. Stir together the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, mayonnaise, garlic, and spinach until evenly mixed.10570976_10203556407903631_1369780074_n
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and cook the bell pepper until tender, about 5 minutes. 10564618_10203556407663625_1253460391_n
  5. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and shrimp.  Cook until pink, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Spread spinach mixture on crust.10570567_10203556406143587_1691890778_n
  7. Spread the shrimp and vegetable mixture onto the pizza.10559045_10203556404623549_814561076_n
  8. Place on grill for 5 minutes – or until cheese is melted and pizza is hot in the middle.  (Be aware that you may have to put the crust on an unlit side of the grill for a few minutes to avoid burning the bottom.  The heat will help melt the cheese even if it isn’t right on the fire.

Notes: 

If you like a thinner sauce, you could use this spinach mixture for 2 pizzas.  This recipe made a BUNCH.  It was pretty thick.

We also made a grilled barbecue shrimp pizza.  We just used barbecue sauce for the base, shrimp, the grilled peppers and topped with cheese.  This one also went on the grill for 5 minutes to melt the cheese.

I used Mamma Mary’s pizza crust.  Here’s a coupon.
