I saw something similar to this in Rachel Ray's magazine and have always wanted to give it a try. Never met a pizza I didn't like. This one is a whole wheat crust pizza topped with garlic shrimp and a roasted pepper sauce (or pesto) in place of the usual marinara. Delicious!
1 whole wheat dough
16oz jar roasted red peppers, rinsed and drained
10 basil leaves
3 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 lb shrimp, cleaned and tails removed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 lb reduced fat mozzarella, shredded
Heat oven to 400. Spread dough over pizza stone or baking sheet. Meanwhile, pulse peppers, basil and 2 tbsp olive oil in food processor until it forms a sauce.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil and add minced garlic. Cook for 2 minutes. Add shrimp and cook until done.
Top pizza dough with sauce, shrimp and shredded mozzarella. Add salt and pepper to taste. Topping with chopped basil is optional. Don't fret over extra sauce. This can be thickend up with some walnuts for use as a spread, or you can keep it as is and use as a dip or topping for any other protein/pasta you like.
Cook to desired doneness.
Healthy Kid Tip: I made an extra pizza for the kids. Just a standard marinara and cheese, but I added 2 tbsp of the pepper sauce in with the marinara. They didn't have a clue!
