Shrimp Scampi Pizza

"I love a good garlicky pizza! I love that this has the sauce poured on top before baking. It really keeps the shrimp from drying out and enhances the garlic flavor."

  1. Great recipe. For the shrimp, I marinated them in garlic, oil, paprika, salt and pepper and then grilled them. I added mozzarella cheese on top and it came out perfect.
  2. Scrumptious!

  5. Oh, wow! This was just excellent! I was really intrigued by the idea of one of my favorite ways to have shrimp being on a pizza, but it really worked. I will surely be making this again and again! The wrinkled noses of the sceptics turned into full mouths of enjoyment! Made for PAC Fall 2007


Hi everybody, I’ve been using “Zaar” website for the last year but ready to commit myself to adding my two cents worth (including some photos). I live with my DH and two great kids and one crazy dog in the foothills of Colorado. We have a great view with lots deer and red rocks. I come from a food-loving family, including my nearby sister who is willing to discuss "what's for dinner" first thing in the morning! I’ve loved cooking every since I was a teenager. I don’t work so I have lots of time to cook my latest craving. I love to try and duplicate dishes I enjoy from restaurants. I have a lot of cookbooks, but now use mostly “Zaar” recipes and from “Cooks Illustrated.” I love reading cookbooks (library) and like the old classics from Betty Crocker to backs of food labels. I love to research lots of recipes before I decide which one to make.
