I had some left over shrimp from last night's po' boys and decided to try them on a pizza. I used the Reduced Fat Alfredo Sauce from Chef #18650 for the alfredo sauce.

I thought this was, all in all, pretty tasty and a lovely way to eat Maine shrimp. DH really liked it. I added some yellow bell pepper, a few mushrooms and a little crabmeat because they needed using, and only 1/2 c. alfredo sauce. Next time I may also add a little garlic. We had some trouble with the crust - made our own, a new venture - and it took much longer than the designated 8 - 10 mins. to cook. That is obviously our problem, not the recipe's. Nonetheless, if I repeat with a homemade crust, I may cook that with cheese and veg a bit first before adding delicate shrimp. Thanks for this keeper.
